If flying into Portland, here are a few options for transportation to/from Salem, Oregon:

  • Rent a car. The car rental rates from the Portland Airport start at about $65 per day for an economy or compact car (seats four).
  • Take a bus. There are four Greyhound buses per day servicing Salem: leaving Portland at 6:30am, 12:45pm, 6:25pm, and 11:10pm, and leaving Salem at 8:00am, 10:35am, 3:00pm, and 9:30pm. The tickets start at $12.00 per person each way. The drive takes about an hour and a half with traffic, and about an hour without traffic. I found tickets on the website,
  • Post a request for ride-shares on the Peerpocalypse Facebook group. This has been done before by a number of people attending Peerpocalypse and has been quite successful.
