Old & New Portland
Atrios had a map of the old streetcar system in Portland. The next link to be (re-)built is from Union Station to Portland State. We live off that L-shape spur in NE PDX. In 1912 I could have walked a block in either direction to catch a streetcar to downtown. 40 minutes on my bike ride to Portland State. Here is the current map of lightrail, commuter train, trolley, and bus. Bicycling is part of the solution.
