We were staying out at Jantzen Beach, so it was easy for us to jump in the car and go to the Delta Park Station and ride into downtown. A cheap $5 pass for the whole day at the easy-to-use ticket kiosk, and we were off. The trains are quick, especially out in the suburbs. Downtown, they slow down quite a bit. The frequency was not as good as you would expect, and we found ourselves waiting for quite a while, even during rush hour, when you'd think that the trains would be coming very frequently.
It's also nice that the same day pass ticket also gets you on the streetcar, which recently expanded to a new line on the east side of the river. This gives you good access to OMSI. However, the street car is even slower and less frequent than the MAX trains, so don't expect to get anywhere in a big hurry.
