Cool way to check out the river front. It saves a lot of walking and costs only a dollar to ride. Bring a jacket as it can be a bit chilly if the wind is up.

I'm so glad we took the trolley. The Conductors; who are volunteers; narrated the entire route and where excellent, they made it fun and informative.

Initially we were disappointed the column was under renovation, but this was the most fun if you don't have bikes. Enjoyed the volunteer history conductors . You can buy the hop on and off ticket for $1 instead of two at the helpful visitors center.

I would like to see the cost of about a .25 or no cost during certain times. It is so wonderful to ride I would like to see it as a no cost to tourist and Astorians. There are enough cost in traveling and they are very high. It is a good ride to see how wonderful Astoria river is.

The trolley runs for a few miles along the Columbia River from noon until 6:00. There are benches for "official" stops, but if you wave a dollar bill at them as they approach, they will stop anywhere. There is an app and a phone number to find out where they are, in case you just missed them. It is a... More

For $1 you can ride the trolley on the 3.5 mile (about) trip along the Astoria waterfront. At the end of the ride, you can help turn the seats around and retrace your ride. You will get a narrative from one of the volunteer operators. For $2 you can get on and off all day. If you only have a... More
