==Get in==
===By Plane===
The nearest airport is at Portland International Airport (PDX) [http://www.pdx.com], which is northeast of Beaverton; see the link for more details.
* '''Taxi''' fare is about $63.00 from the airport to Beaverton Transit Center to include flag fall & tip.
* '''MAX''' [http://trimet.org/schedules/maxredline.htm] red line is the most direct & economical mode of transportation to Beaverton from the airport. This is a great way to get around due to the heavy traffic on local freeways. When you travel From Lloyd Center to Galleria/SW 10th Ave there is no fare. Tri-Met fares are determined by the number of zones you plan on riding through. An all zones ticket will run $1.95. The MAX is a good way to get around and its ride is relatively pleasant.
 
===By Car===
From Portland, the fastest is to go west on Sunset Hwy (US Hwy 26) and exit at Canyon Rd (OR-8 at exit 71) or the next one at Hwy 217 (OR-217 at exit 69A) to exit 1 (SW Walker Rd) or 2B (Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy / Canyon Rd) to get to central Beaverton. If coming along I-5 northbound from Wilsonville, Salem or other places south, exit at OR-217 at exit 292B and go north on Hwy 217 to exit 2B (Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy / Canyon Rd) to get to Central Beaverton.

==Get around==
The central areas around Cedar Crossing Mall [http://www.cedarhillscrossing.com], Beaverton Transit Center and old town Beaverton are compact enough and "walkable" by foot if getting here without a car. Other areas beyond are typically suburban with everything further apart (and out) which will require a private automobile to get around efficiently. Otherwise Tri Met do provide all sort of buses to various places in and around Beaverton from both Beaverton & Sunset Transit Center hubs which are also MAX (light rail) stations.
