Portland Aerial Tram is a Big HitBy Wayne B. Prunerhttp://www.yourhomeinportlandoregon.com/Waynes' Portland area Real Estate blogwww.activerain.com/waynepruner The Portland Aerial Tram is up and running, and the view is great. It even has it's own website, http://www.portlandtram.com/. This project had controversy with cost over-runs and neighborhood resistance. However, all seems well now. Construction phases became publicity events and there was a contest to name the cars. "Jean" and "Walt" won; after Jean Richardson, the first female engineering graduate from Oregon State University and Walt Reynolds, the first African-American to graduate from OHSU, then known as the University of Oregon Medical School.
