Portland's Max is a study in simplicity and efficiency. The trains are fast (50-60 MPH) and comfortable. Two doors on each of the end units allow easy boarding and alighting. A public address system announces the next station, the route you are riding, and its destination.

This car is crossing the Portland Streetcar tracks. Note how the poles that support the overhead wire are extensions of the street lights. Note also how unobtrusive the overhead wire is, even though this is a complex intersection.
