    Did you know there’s a special train in Portland that you can step on and be magically transported to amazing sites around town? It’s called the MAX and this choose-your-own-adventure zine is here to tell you all about it.

    Welcome aboard! The MAX is a five-line rail system connecting all of Portland and a few places outside of Portland. You pay just $2.50 for a 2.5-hour ticket; $5 for a full-day ticket. When you ride the MAX you’re in great company with thousands of other Portlanders who use it to go pretty much anywhere. This zine starts on one of the lines and takes you on a page-turningly exciting journey from one MAX destination to the next.
