The trolley is operated by volunteers, who provide a narrative of the sites as you travel. The trolley operates from where the cruise ships dock to the beginning of the downtown area, or approximately 1.3 miles (IIRC). We had planned on walking into town after exiting the trolley, but changed our plans. The problem was the heat and the crowds.... More

After a long walk in Astoria, we took the trolley to return to the port. Fortunately, the trolley was going the opposite way that we wanted to go because we had a pleasant, humor filled ride to the end of the line and then back to the port. The volunteers who run the trolley are terrific and obviously enjoy their... More

Talk about potential. This could be a really nice attraction or method of getting around. Regrettably the schedule is not very frequent (about every 50 min) and its hours are very limited. This creates an environment in which the trolley doesn't become very useful unless you're lucky. You could get stranded, or end up waiting for up to 2 hours... More

The day were were in Astoria there were 2 cruise ships in port, so NO WAY you could get a ride on the trolley. It runs along the pier and which is a lovely ride as no one exits the trolley. Put on your big boy pants and walk the scenic area.

We were really looking forward to taking the trolley around Astoria to learn of the history and see the sights. We saw people standing in line waiting for it, but we decided to walk over to the Visitors Center to find out some information about Astoria. Fortunately for us we did that because they told us that since it was... More

The trolley is operated by volunteers and is a neat way to keep some history alive. Good way to support some historical venues

Runs along the shore and gives an overview of the town. Conductors are entertaining and include a history of the area.

The trolley is on railroad tracks and travels for 3 miles along the waterfront. It's very inexpensive, only one or two dollars. I had read that it stopped in September but it was running today in October. Kids will love it!

Convenient . We enjoyed the history of the area! The trolley made it easy to get around. Visited the Flavel home, aquatics museum, JC Penney's and some antique shops.
