Lincoln and Benton Counties have teamed up and are offering two buses that run between Corvallis and Newport. A bus leaves each location four times a day, and they both run seven days a week (except Christmas and Thanksgiving). Animals are allowed, but non-service animals must be in veterinarian-approved containers. The buses are ADA accessible with a wheelchair lift and bike racks are available for free. The bus stops at the Corvallis Downtown Transit Center (5th and Monroe) making it easy to link up with CTS.
Cross-county trips cost $7 to $10 but bulk tickets are available at discounted rates. The bus also offers short trips for a highly discounted price. Taking the bus between Toledo Park & Ride and Newport and between Philomath and Corvallis costs only $1. Taking it from Corvallis to the Albany Amtrak station costs $2. A schedule and more information can be found at Coast to Valley Express.
Once you are in Newport, you can take advantage of the Lincoln County Bus system. All buses run Monday through Saturday, and a few run on Sunday. You can ride from Yachats 60 miles north to Rose Lodge and stop everywhere in between for less then $8.
