Portland to Seattle: How to commute daily on a budget?

by judodad

I currently live in southern California, I intend to move my family to Portland and, I have a great job opportunity in Seattle.

It looks like commuting between Portland and Seattle by car would be nerve-wracking, costly and a huge waste of family time.

Is their a commuter train or bus service between these two cities? Can someone tell me if their is a good, cost effective way to communte daily or perhaps weekly?

You're talking about a three-hour drive each way. Wouldn't you be better off living in the same town as your family?

I think that commuting daily between the two cities is unrealistic, and sorry to disappoint you. There is an Amtrak Cascades line (see link below) that runs about three times a day between Portland and Seattle, but it takes more than 3 hours each way, and then you still have to take a bus to wherever your office is. Same thing to get back to your home in Portland. I'd suggest living in Seattle, but if you are determined to live in Portland, then maybe you just have to rent a little room or apartment in Seattle to live in during the week while working, and commute home to Portland on the weekend. I wish you good luck in making your decision!

That's too far of a commute, Seattle has some very nice areas, why not just move there.

Driving from Portland to Seattle will probably be about 3-4 hours depending on the traffic. I think it is possible to commute on a weekly basis- go home to your family on the weekend in Portland and work in Seattle during the week...That will be exhausting though. Plus it will be very costly because you have to pay rent in Seattle and pay rent/mortgage in Portland. On top of that, the gas is expensive!!!

If you really need to have split cities, I would suggest getting a studio in Seattle or renting a room from someone and then heading home to Portland on weekends

A friend of mine told me about this shuttle company and said it's a nice service.

Commuting from Portland to Seattle daily is rather unrealistic. The distance is too great and it would take any where from three to four hours. And you would have to factor in the traffic south of Seattle which can be very, very bad. Seattle is a nice city - you may want to reconsider!

Travel Tips for Portland

Portland Trailblazers Game

by cheap_tourist

I was checking in at my hostel when I saw a copy of the Blazer's schedule. It turned out that they have a game the following day. I asked for directions to the Rose Garden. As soon as I could, I went there and bought a ticket--the cheapest that they have. I am a Lakers fan after all.

On game time, I became a supporter of the Blazers. Their opponent was the Indiana Pacers. It was a tough game. Although I was in the "nose bleed" section, I had a great time. I knew those binoculars would come in handy some day. The Blazers won in overtime. After the game, I was back to being a Lakers fan again.

Tail Wags Dog! Film at 11!

Beaverton is the Capitol of Oregon. Some sticklers for accuracy will claim the Cap is Salem; more astute students will claim the capital is in Portland. The simple truth of the matter is that both political & financial power has shifted over the last quarter of a century or more to big city burbs all across the country.

The latest rumor, the one I'm about to start, is that the annual Portland Rose Festival, parade & all, will soon shift to Beaverton, or at least be rotated through there annually, to Tigard, Gresham, even Vancouver, etc. Portland high school students, little more then token participants already, in favor of plasticland foreign born students, will eventually be excluded entirely.

There is some gentrification to be sure, a return to core values, but an entire generation has grown up in the suburbs with total, unremitting contempt for those of us who prefer city life. It is irksome to say the least, to hear our spoiled plasticland spawn preach to each other with bated breath, as though they really knew what they were talking about, about the horrors of city life, that the city is a dangerous place to be, etc. How would they know, how could they possibly know, other then from the shallow caricatures of real human beings being portrayed in the movies or on TV?

HRUMPH! Crime & corruption follow the money. Plasticland is where the money is.

Any true Portlander has learned that umbrellas are pointless. because of the winds the rain comes in sideways and breaks them.

other local customs are going out to have a beer, coffee (anytime of day) or to breakfast .
We have many great places to do any of these.

also last thing I have to say is we all do not wear flannel and it is not that common anymore to see this. it is not that plaid of a city. Although if you go to the nature around Portland you will see much more plaid.

lots of walking and photo taking

by richiecdisc

A good pair of walking shoes will come in handy in this city voted in the top ten walking cities in the United States. Portland is noted for getting its fair share of sprinkles. It may not rain hard but it rains often so an umbrella is a good thing to carry. We were lucky to have nothing but sun during our three days! A wide angle is a great piece of equipment for taking photos of buildings and their interiors. An external flash will give you much better results when taking photos of people indoors as well shots of food. D was one very understanding wife as we made our way around the Portland brewpubs. At least she didn't get stuck driving aside from the first day.

Titlewave Used Bookstore

by IncogNeat-0

Update: May 2007

This is a must-see must-do for any bookaholic to carry away books, mags, videos, etc being phased out by Multnomah County Library. Operated entirely by bookaholic volunteers for bookaholic browsers in the old Irvington branch library where I got my first library card - or was it my second? No matter. Coffee, clean rest rooms, a quiet restful bookaholic paradise. Live link below has a live link for local area map.

On street parking in a quiet neighborhood. No meters.

Board Blue (Gresham) or Red (Airport) MAX train on south side of Pioneer Courthouse Square. Exit @ Rose Quarter TC (Transit Center). Board northbound #4 Fessenden or #44 Mocks Crest bus. Exit @ NE Williams & Graham, about a quarter of a mile. Walk back one block to NE Knott, then left on Knott to the bookstore. Bookstore is on NE Knott between Williams Avenue & Martin Luther King Boulevard.

216 N.E. Knott, Portland, OR 97212
Mon.–Sat., 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Interesting older residential neighborhood for a walkabout, weather permitting, showing a lot of TLC.

Return via #4 or #44 Trimet buses on Vancouver Avenue, a block west of Williams Avenue, or #6 M.L. King Trimet bus on Martin Luther King Boulevard. Across the street from the #6 M.L. King Trimet bus stop is a Nike factory outlet store (seconds).
