Tram Above

This somewhat other-worldly view shows the northbound Streetcar rails curving twice to reach the SW Gibbs St. station. 

The Portland Aerial Tram appears high up.  That 3,300 foot route opened in early 2007.  The upper station is at Oregon Health & Science University, Marquam Hill Campus, part of which is visible in the distance.  The expanding university has a Center for Health & Healing down below, the building to the left.  Most Tram patronage is by students, hospital employees or visitors.
