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.
