I live in the uptown area of downtown Portland now, so I walk to everything and take MAX Light Rail or Bus to my 3 job sites in NE Portland and Beaverton, OR. Previously, I was living in NE Portland and did a lot more driving. Traffic in Portland has become very bad in the 12.5 years I've lived here and at age 64, I'm less willing to spend time creeping along in traffic jams on I-205 and I-84. When you live in the Metro Area one thinks twice about driving to functions in the City (concerts, plays) because of traffic and parking (esp on Saturdays); I know this was true for me and it's true for my daughter and her family (she's 33). The evening commute starts at 3pm and goes till 7pm if there are no accidents. Morning commute rush starts at 6am and goes strong till 9:30am. I-84 Westbound bottlenecks a mile or so before the I-5/Hwy 99 junction at all time of the day and evening.
