Bus Travel Tips
Make friends with the driver. They usually know a lot about your destination and may even recommend which side of the bus to sit on to get the best views on the road between Portland and Tacoma!
Start sightseeing the minute your bus leaves the station. If you're on the night bus from Portland to Tacoma, get comfy and count the stars.
Buses have the smallest carbon footprint of all motorized transport modes. A bus going from Portland to Tacoma will emit half the CO2 emitted by a train, and radically less than a car or an airplane.
Make a music playlist for your bus ride from Portland to Tacoma, and enjoy the scenery to tunes from your own personal soundtrack.
