Greeters at Airport and Amtrak Station

We want to welcome you to Portland and make sure that you get off to a good start by helping you get to your hotel quickly once you have arrived.

Greeters will be at the Portland Airport and at the Amtrak Union Station on Saturday August 22nd, and Sunday August 23rd to help you get to your hotel.

There will be two greeters at the Airport Baggage Claim area to direct you to the MAX Light Rail that can take you directly to the DoubleTree Hotel (the main convention hotel) and the Inn at the Convention Center. They will be there between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM both days.

Over at the downtown Amtrak Portland Union Station, greeters will be meeting the northbound Coast Startlight train from Los Angeles, as well as the westbound Empire Builder from Chicago. They will direct you to the MAX light rail which will again take you directly to the two hotels.

The fares for the Light Rail are $1.00 for ages 65+, $2.50 for ages 18-64, and $1.25 for ages 7-17. More information including custom directions can be found on our Transit web page and on the TRIMET web site.

If you are booked at the Red Lion, unfortunately you will need to take a Taxi as there is no Light Rail service to it. Taxis will be available just outside the airport baggage claim area and at the Amtrak Union Station. The Greeters can help you with this as well.

To help you recognize our Greeters, they will be wearing maroon coloured T-Shirts with the convention logo, as shown.
