The Portland Streetcar provides local service in the downtown area. This station at Portland State University is an example of how attractive a modern streetcar system can be.

Each car consists of three sections, two end units that sit over the trucks and a hanging center section. These cars are slower than Max trains and they run as single units. They were designed to provide local service at low speeds and they do so very effectively.
