Getting Around

Portland is relatively easy to negotiate on foot as plenty of attractions are within walking distance. The Old Port is worth exploring, as is the Downtown Arts District. A car is worth hiring if visitors are exploring the wider region and parking is readily available.

Tickets get stamped for an hour's free parking at a number of downtown locations. The Greater Portland Transit District METRO provides good bus coverage of the Portland area; Uber and similar ride-hailing apps and taxi services are available.
