If it isn't rail (they are now upgrading their LRT to use the Bombardier trains that Paris uses) it's bicycles: according to the US Census Bureau, Portland has the highest rate of cycling in the US, eight times higher than the national average.
May I add from having lived there that Hamilton is more compact and walkable / cyclable than Portland. Well, Hamilton could be. Five-lane mega-highways downtown don't really encourage cycling.
