The BBC program Newsnight has a long segment on alternative transportation in Portland. There is a video stream at, but since that appears to be a generic address, I’m not sure how long it with have the current episode (the Portland segment starts about 24 minutes into the 50 minute program).

The program covers everything from MAX to the recent car-free challenge to the Tram (Sam is on-air) to Flexcar to a recent bike move. Curiously the on-air talent is the vice-chair of the Conservative Party. It’s sort of as if Denny Hastert were doing segments on CBS.
