St. Mary's is centrally located downtown, and we draw students from all around the Portland metropolitan area. Students commute to campus in a variety of ways from Vancouver, Hillsboro, Gresham, West Linn and all points in between.
Our campus is easily accessible by a variety of public transportation routes including the yellow, orange and green MAX trains, TriMet buses, the Portland Streetcar and C-TRAN buses. We also assist families in arranging carpools.
TriMet continues to be a popular option, and for many parents, their daughters' first trip on TriMet can be intimidating. We asked parents and students to share their experiences commuting to SMA.
Public Transportation: The PDX Bus app and TriMet website provide current arrival times and trip-planning options. Many students use map apps such as Google Maps to find the easiest route to a new location. With step-by-step instructions, these apps are as simple as GPS!
