Really moves slowly, goes few places and you can likely walk faster, but its fun and would be great for kids or folks looking for a low impact visit. catch by the dock near the maritime museum.

The historical aspect of the trolley was great. So glad the weather cleared up so we could ride it. This is a great way to learn about different areas along the river.

The fully restored electric trolley makes it way along Astoria's waterfront less frequently in the winter but carries a full spring and summer schedule. It just costs a buck to ride, or two dollars to jump on and off for a day. Fun way to tour the waterfront.

The waterfront trolley goes from one end of Astoria to the other, and the volunteer conductor and engineer are filled with info about the town's history.

We got off our cruise ship and walked just a little bit to the trolley stop and hopped on. For $1 each, we went from one end of the line to the other. You can get on and off and ride all day. The conductors were very knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful history lesson about the trolley and the... More

For $1.00 can can ride this trolley all day. It covers just the Columbia river walk. The trolley is unique and it has many stops. It is a great way to view Astoria.

This is a nice informative tour. The people were super nice and knowledgeable. Worth way more than the small fare charged. This should not be missed.

Fri-Sun in the winter, 11am-4pm, except in bad weather. Dinky sweet little trolley is a tradition for us. The conductors tell funny tales about the waterfront you pass by and you can get on or off all day for just a couple dollars.
