Getting to Portland Village School  


Portland Village School (PVS) is located in North Portland, in the Kenton Neighborhood. We are on a Portland recommended bike route, near 3 major bus lines, one mile west of the I-5 Lombard exit and a half mile from the Interstate Max station. We encourage carpooling and alternative transportation whenever possible. Each year we participate in the International Bike + Walk to School Day, providing incentives for our classrooms with the most students who have come to school by pedal power and foot.

By Bicycle

The City of Portland has mapped Delaware Avenue as a low traffic, shared roadway for bicycles and autos. Take a look at the city’s North Portland Bike/Walk Map to plan your route. You may also order a free copy.

By Bus

PVS is one block from bus route 75, and less than a 10 minute walk from bus routes 35 and 4. Visit the TriMet Trip Planner to determine your best route.


The MAX Yellow Line is a frequent service line. PVS is about one half mile from the Kenton/N Denver Station; you may consider biking or walking from this stop. The Lombard TC MAX Station is about one half mile from school; you can transfer to bus route 75 from here.

By Carpooling

Carpooling is community building and lightens our footprint on the environment. Whenever possible, we encourage families to carpool with other families that live in your neighborhood.
