Depends on what you're comfortable with. I commuted downtown for years, and never had problems - Ankeny to Burnside and up 3rd, and you're golden. Broadway or further north and it's slightly trickier...

OMG. I just realized I've had Beaverton TC and Sunset TC mixed up in my head this whole time. All the suggestions I've gotten make MUCH more sense now. Looks like a piece of cake, thanks again!

Who knows. I looked over the DMV web site, and decided $90 must be right: $55 registration, $20 for four-year surcharge on plates, $5 plate fee, and $10 plate replacement fee....
