This summer, the Columbia Gorge Express will resume service between Portland and Multnomah Falls. It makes the journey 12 times per day at a rate of $5 per trip. Families with children are encouraged to use the express to make the otherwise inconvenient trip. With more funds from the outdoors department, the shuttle will now be able to carry up to 40 passengers at once, a massive increase from last year’s 20 passengers. Larger shuttles are also safer and easier to manage for drivers. While most parties take the shuttle from Portland to Multnomah Falls, it is also possible to traverse the route backwards. Portland has great restaurants, shops, and hotels to stay at. Multnomah Falls is home to beautiful waterfalls, wildlife, and incredibly green flora. On both ends of the express, there are amazing sights to see. Once you buy your ticket at the gate, wait at the station for the next shuttle to arrive. Hop onboard with your friends, enjoy the ride, and get off at your final destination. Aside from holidays and days recognized by the national park service, the Colombia Gorge Express will operate from 9-5 on weekdays and Saturdays. Alternatives to the shuttle include buses, cars, and vans. However, you won’t be able to travel through the majestic scenery of the gorge. Avoid crowded parking lots and the congestion of the road with this fabulous shuttle.
