High transit rating for Portland's Moda Center
Portland's Moda Center is among the best in the nation when it comes to access to public transportation, according to a recent ranking.
What's happening: Walk Score, a Redfin company that promotes walkable neighborhoods and studies bike and transit access, found that the arena scored 85 out of 100 in its assessment.
Why it matters: Better transit — if people use it — helps not only the planet but everybody stuck in the freeway backup or parking line before big events.
How it works: The company assigns a "usefulness" value to the nearby transit routes based on frequency, type and distance between stops.
- The Moda Center — also the host arena for comedy shows, traveling circuses and concerts —is designated "convenient" in this analysis, along with all arenas scoring between 70 and 89.
- It's just 5 points short of being "world class."
