Very limited free parking in the shared lot, but plenty of metered street parking around the venue. Portland Streetcar stops are 1-2 blocks away (CL Line), MAX stops are 1/4 mile north at the Oregon Convention Center, and the #6 bus runs on MLK Jr. Blvd. & Grand Avenue. SEMpdx urges all attendees to be safe and use a rideshare provider like Uber or Lyft.
