Sunset Empire Transportation District will be making several route and schedule changes beginning August 18TH. These changes are part of SETD's ongoing effort to improve transit service throughout the area. Upcoming changes will combine the weekday Route 30 and the weekend Connector Route into a new Route 30. The new Route 30 will provide service 2 times a day (7 days a week) from Warrenton/Hammond to Astoria and along Highway 30 with stops in Svenson, Knappa, Westport, Clatskanie, Rainier, Longview and Kelso. The Route 30 will continue to connect with Columbia County Rider at Rainier twice a day. Route 20 will increase weekday (Monday thru Friday) connections with Tillamook County Transportation from 2 to 3 times a day by also meeting the Tillamook Bus in Manzanita each morning. Midday service to Hammond will be added to the Route 10 schedule.
For more information and to view the proposed route schedules and the proposed Route 30 Bus Fares please visit the SETD website at www.ridethebus.org or you may obtain printed copies of the proposed schedules and proposed fares at Sunset Empire Transportation Transit Center at 900 Marine Drive in Astoria.
