|The Astoria Riverfront Trolley|
|Astoria - Warrenton|
Astoria’s Old 300 Trolley follows the flow of the Columbia River with trestles crossing over the water occasionally. A diesel generator powers the 1913 car.
The trolley is equipped with GPS tracking that updates every two minutes for the convenience of the public. Visitors to the waterfront discover the historic trolley is the best transportation in town.
The trolley became a reality through donations, volunteer workers and a little help from the city itself.
Seals and sea lions are a common sight along the path. Boarding takes place at the Maritime Museum with a number of scheduled stops up and down the tracks with benches and shelters. The public can board the trolley in-between stops by waving a dollar.
Passengers can board and ride round-trip for $1, all day for $2 or charter the trolley for $100 an hour. Approximately 40 passengers can enjoy the one-hour round trip ride on the trolley at the same time.
Brought back from the past, The Astoria Trolley is one of the most affordable tourist attractions in the city.
