For a $1.00 donation, you can complete a narrated and scenic trip from and back to your trolley stop. Trolley runs on one track up and down the river front. Passengers flip seats around to face the front when trolley changes direction. Trolley driver up front and Trolley conductor/narrator in the back. Trolley is manned by dedicated volunteers. Great way... More

A "must do" in Astoria! For only $2 a person, we got on and off throughout the day. The conductors were funny, helpful and informative. Wonderful, beautiful day on the coast! Thank you!

Volunteers obviously know their town and enjoy their "job" of running the trolley. Low speed interesting way to tour the waterfront riverwalk.

We went to the riverfront especially to ride the trolly. While walking from one stop to another the trolly came by and after frantically waving and some running, saw it take off without us. Bus drivers will stop when they see a passenger trying to board, not here. Also it begins service at noon, not so hot if you want... More

The trolley staff were friendly and provided narration of the town's history, the waterfront, buildings, etc. as we rode along! We were able to get on and off as much as we liked. The only thing that may be an... More

You can see a lot on the trolley and also have a narrative by the volunteers that operate the trolley. You can get off and get back on for $2 all day.
