Fun experience, great city view. This was built to connect hospitals but I like to view city from here.

Great way to move between OHSU campuses. Free pass for patients is a real plus. Don't really know, but wonder if it's user friendly for those with mobility issues.

The Marquam Trail goes up the hill to the medical center. From there you can take the tram back down for free. Both directions are fun.

i really wanted to write a review on our Air Tram experience from downtown to the hospital. It was fun and we all loved it (even I did and I am terrified of heights!). Staff was very helpful, our children has a blast, just a great and quick hing to do as a family!!

It's well worth the money to take this tram up to the OSU Hospital, even if you don't need a doctor! The view from the outdoor terraces the look out over the city. Phenomenal picture opportunities abound!

We recently took the tram. Being from Chicago we were delighted with the inexpensive price (I think it was around 4.00) Worth it for the views and photos.

An excellent view from this tram, not much else to do once you're up there but totally worth the trip.
