  • Tram on a Hot Summer Day

    Over at CommissionerSam.com, a new post is up about the high level of ridership on the Portland Aerial Tram. Last December, in another conversation over there, a number of critics made dire predictions about the future of the Tram, not only in terms of ridership but also about hot weather. With those criticisms in mind, I rode the tram yesterday, making a point to note temperatures (on a record-setting 100+ degree day) and make a few observations.
