Corvallis Amtrak Shuttle to be Discontinued

A shuttle connecting Corvallis, Oregon, with the Amtrak station in Albany, Oregon, is being discontinued, but a bus line linking the two cities will be increased.

The shuttle will operate for the last time on Aug. 19.

It began in August 2017 as a two-year pilot program with funding provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Benton County continued to pay for the shuttle after state funding ended last fall.

County officials have said the fund they were using to pay for the shuttle has run out of money.

Passengers who bought tickets to ride the shuttle beyond Aug. 19 can obtain a refund by emailing help@corvallistoamtrak.com.

The Coast to Valley bus service between Corvallis and Albany will expand to eight trips using money that will become available in October that was part of a $5.3 billion program budget approved by the legislature.

Additional bus service between Corvallis and Albany is provided by the Linn-Benton Loop.
