St. James is conveniently located at the convergence of many Trimet transit lines. The Portland Streetcar stops less than a block from the church. St. James is located two blocks from the Portland Transit Mall, which runs the (north/south) Green and Yellow MAX lines as well as nearly 30 different bus lines from all over the metro area. St. James is also located six blocks from the (east/west) Blue and Red MAX lines stops along Morrison and Yamhill Streets.
We encourage you to consider utilizing public transportation (bus, streetcar, or MAX) if possible, or carpool with a neighbor! Please feel free to contact us if you are interested but need help in determining which option might work best for you!
