Beginning March 19, the NorthWest POINT bus in Astoria will no longer serve the Astoria Mini Mart. The Astoria Transit Center will be the NorthWest POINT's only Astoria stop and outlet for on-site ticket sales. (Travelers can still purchase tickets online with Greyhound (www.greyhound.com) or Amtrak (www.amtrak.com).) The last day to catch the bus at the Mini Mart, 95 West Marine Drive St. in Astoria, is March 18, 2013. The Oregon Department of Transportation is making changes to increase efficiencies in the system.
The Northwest POINT provides two daily round trips between Portland and Astoria. The Astoria Transit Center's phone numbers are 503-861-7433 or toll free, 866-811-1001.
