Portland’s aerial tram can now be seen as one of the city’s most transformational projects ever. But it wasn't always a popular project.
For the first time since the 1970s, Metro has voted not to expand the region's Urban Growth Boundary, saying there is enough room for the projected 400,000 new residents set to arrive in the next 20 years.
In April, Portland started a four-month pilot program deregulating the taxi industry and allowing ride services Uber and Lyft to operate legally for the first time.
