If you can’t find the info you are looking for here please get in touch at:
Q: Is there public transportation to the event location?
A: Because we are located in a residential neighborhood in the West Hills of Portland, close public transportation to the venue is limited. The nearest transit center is the Barbur Transit Center and busses from Downtown Portland and from Washington Square area hotels run to that transit center frequently throughout the day and night. We are planning on offering small group pick-ups from limited locations to help make your transportation to the event easier. We will pick-up Saturday morning from: Barbur Transit Center, Embassy Suites Washington Square, and Starbucks in Multnomah Village. If you think you will require a pick-up from one of these spots, let us know as soon as possible and we will get you on the list!

A: An Uber or Lyft from downtown PDX will be about $15-$20, and from the Embassy Suites it will be about $12-$17.

A: Yes, there is plenty of parking in the West Hills Friends parking lot and also at the school parking lot across the street.
