 If you take MAX, the red, blue and green lines run directly to the Gateway Transit Center. Several bus lines run there as well.

 Pedestrian and bicycle access is available from the northern and southern edges via the I-205 multi-use path.  In the City of Maywood Park, to the north, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over I-205 takes you to the Gateway Green site. From the Gateway Transit Center at the south end, the multi-use path takes you over the I-84 freeway, under the Halsey Street underpass, and onto the Gateway Green site.

 If you drive, you can park free at the Gateway Transit Center parking structure, the Green Line Main Street Park ‘n Ride to the south, or the Yellow Line Parkrose/Sumner Park ‘n Ride to the north.  It is important that you do not park in business parking lots or on the surrounding residential streets.
