getting to the coast... without a car

Catch the wave! non-stop Portland Express Service

Once you get to Tillamook, you can go as far west as Oceanside, as far north as Manzanita, or as far south as Pacific City. The prices are reasonable: $10, one way, or $15 roundtrip. The trip takes 2 hours and there are two trips a day Monday-Saturday. However, buses run only once on Sundays, and buses don't run at all on most holidays.

The "in-town" stops are the Greyhound Station, Union Station, the Sunset Transit Center, and 185th near Highway 26...

Tillamook County Transportation District (TCTD)

The Portland-area's connection to the Oregon Coast, the Tillamook County Transportation District (TCTD) provides two round trips daily to Portland's Union Station. For more information call 503-815-TCTD (8283). More on TCTD at

Like Trimet, the Tillamook buses have bike racks... Unlike Trimet, you can make reservations for the bike rack, and it is a good idea. That way, you'll know if both slots have been reserved, so you can make other plans.

If you're leaving from downtown, Union Station is a much nicer place to wait than the Greyhound Station.
