Electric Transit

Windmill painted on side of Max Train as I passed by in another Max Train.

One of the goals of this summers travels was riding Portland's Max Train. Staying in a motel room in Portland, OR. I just took the Max out to Beaverton and back.

A driver ask, "where's your umbrella?" Portland was experiencing a shower. I said, "The train is my umbrella."

Sitting a short while in Beaverton waiting to pick up a new load of passengers. I just stayed on the train and headed back downtown.

The means of transit was the destination.

Stay tuned for more about this summer's travels via bicycle, train and so forth.

Isn't it just great on how transportation is getting easier nowadays. Lately I choose to ride the train or the sub way than to drive my own car. It totally minimizes the total time I use to travel, it avoids traffic and its cheaper than to pay for gasoline on the daily basis
