The head of ODOT’s Public Transportation Division, Karyn Criswell, stated that the decreased fares are in part a reaction to the high expense of driving in the Willamette Valley.
Criswell explained that after considering the expensive nature of traveling through the Willamette Valley through Interstate 5, they came to the conclusion that they could provide an alternative that was superior. It’s far more pleasant than fighting traffic, the charges are more reasonable, and the journey is really comfy.
Starting Wednesday, Jan. 4, riders can travel from Portland to Eugene for as low as $17 on Amtrak Cascades. In an effort to offer travelers more affordable options, other Oregon stops have cut fares as well – Oregon City, Salem and Albany – by up to 30%. https://t.co/KEMIJ3Kzge
