Delta Park/Vanport is a light rail station on the MAX Yellow Line in Portland, Oregon. It is the 9th stop northbound on the Interstate MAX extension and is in the area of Delta Park, formerly the site of the city of Vanport. It is located between Portland International Raceway on the west and Interstate 5 on the east and is at the north end of the Vanport Bridge, which spans the Columbia Slough and an industrial area.

The station platforms are to the sides of the tracks. Beyond them are two park and ride lots to the west and bus bays connected to an I-5 off-ramp to the east. When the station opened, there was no regular bus service at this station; however, C-Tran did use the bus bays during winter storms instead of providing service to downtown Portland. C-Tran is now regularly serving the station with two limited-stop routes (47-Battle Ground Limited and 60-Delta Park Limited). Artwork at the station references the 1948 Vanport Flood, even utilizing bronzed artifacts found on the construction site.

Bus line connections[edit]

Three C-Tran buses at the station

This station is served by the following C-Tran bus routes to Vancouver, Washington and other points in Clark County:[1]

  • 47 - Battle Ground Limited (rush hour only)
  • 60 - Delta Park Limited (operating all day, seven days a week)[2]

Previously, C-Tran routes 4-Fourth Plain and 44-Fourth Plain Limited served the station, but in September 2016 the relevant portion of route 4 was discontinued and route 44 was partly discontinued and partly replaced by new route 74, which does not extend into Portland.[3]
