The phones go live today for reservations to ride the Aerial Tram on opening weekend, January 27 & 28. If you would like a free ride on the tram over that weekend, you need to call 503-418-TRAM (8726) to reserve a day and time. Rides will be given from 10 a.m.to 5:00 p.m. in 30-min. increments. There is a limit of 5 riders for each reservation and approximately 50 people will be riding in each "pod." The ride times are necessary to avoid huge lines at the opening. (OHSU is aiming for organized chaos!)
Up at the OHSU docking area, the hospital will offer punch and cookies and time for a quick look at the view before it's time to head back down. The docking area is above the Kohler Pavillion and it will be open and physicians will be seeing patients so OHSU would prefer to not have people wanding around the hospital grounds. Opening weekend includes food, information booths and music too. All activites take place in or near OHSU's Center for Health and Healing at the lower tram terminal.
Sounds like a fabulous outing for the whole family!
