Portland Aerial Tram - Portland, Oregon

The tram travels between the South Waterfront and Marquam Hill (about 3,300 linear feet). The tram travels 500 feet above the city, at around 22 miles per hour. The video is real time, it takes approximately four-minutes to make the trip.

Fun facts: The Trams are named "Jean" and "Walt", after Jean Richardson--the first female engineering graduate from Oregon State University, and Walt Reynolds, the first African American to graduate from OHSU. The tram station names come from the local Tualitin language. The lower station is named Chamanchal ("on the river"), and the upper station is named Chemeffu ("on the mountain").
