Due to financial difficulties, Sunset Empire Transportation District discontinued its services on Sunday, April 30, thus cutting off public transportation for those who relied on it.

Clatsop County and the route between Astoria and Portland, Oregon’s Sunset Empire Transportation District, have been without transit service since the weekend due to the district’s severe financial deficit.

β€œThe message is we will not be offering any public transportation services effective Saturday due to the financial situation that we’re in. We will get it restarted as soon as we have a financial package in place. And we’ll get the process to restart up and running as soon as possible,” said executive director Jeff Hazen.

Many locals relied on the service to commute to work, perform errands, and attend medical appointments. Thus, its elimination will have serious consequences. Hazen claims that there was an 11% increase in ridership this year.
