MAX Light Rail
November's City Daily Photo theme is "Public Transportation". I was in downtown Portland yesterday, and thought our mass transportation light rail, MAX (Metropolitain Area Express) would be a great example of this. Originally opened in 1986, it now stretches in all directions of the Portland metro area, from the east side of Gresham (where I live), out to Hillsboro on the west side of Portland, north to the airport and south to Clackamas. At one point, the train goes from downtown Portland undergroud towards the Hillsboro, stopping only once at the zoo. At this point, it is 260 ft underground, making it the deepest in North America, and the second deepest in the world! More info about MAX can be found here.
