Transportation from Klamath Falls to Ashland 8-30-13

We are traveling by Amtrak to Ashland, Oregon arrving at the Klamath Falls Station at 8AM on Friday, 8-30-13(assuming the Coast Starlight is on time!)... The Amtrak bus that takes you to Ashland takes over 5 hours to get to there (apparently many stops)... which is not an inviting prospect. I am trying to arrange a private shuttle to pick us up which will shave four hours off the journey. And am wondering if anybody else is planning a similar trip so we can share the cost of the transporation. The cost of the shuttle is $110 ... and we are two people.

If anybody has any other ideas on how to get from the train station to Ashland efficiently, i'd welcome the input

How did you figure Klamath shuttle, Klamath to Ashland took that much time? maybe it was lay over getting from Medford to Ashland. Did you call Klamath Shuttle??. If you can get to Medford should be fairly easy to get to Ashland

This shuttle is quicker and less expensive than what you are reporting. And it gives you a better buffer on train arrival time.

Good tips on the shuttle. For ride-sharing check out "Drive Less Connect" (http://drivelessconnect.com/) - you can enter in your travel dates and search for others who might be traveling at the same time.

Just double checked the Amtrak schedule. It shows that the Coast Starlight is scheduled to arrive in Klamath Falls at 8:07. The "Thru-way" bus leaves at 10:30 and gets to Ashland 2hours and 40 minutes later at 1:10. Then we have to find a way to get to our rental proeprty as I'm unclear on where the bus deposits us. So at least it appears that the ride itslef is less that 5 hours. (good to know...)

We are trying to do all this without having to rent a car as firends will be joining us the next day and they will have transporation.

Looks as if it should work out okay. There is probably a local taxi service in Ashland. Maybe the local bus route will take you near your rental ... this might help:
