Cascades route  Portland-Eugene  

Alerts & News

SERVICE ALERT – May 30, 2019: On Monday, May 20, 2019 we implemented temporary schedule changes to our Cascades route (Portland-Eugene) due to recently announced highway construction on I-5. This schedule will be in effect until construction is completed. This could be as late as the end of October and it is likely that we will need to make small adjustments here and there as the construction progresses.

Go to the Schedules page here to view and print the new schedule or see below. Up-to-date schedule times will be reflected in Amtrak’s system when purchasing tickets.

The construction will take place between Salem and Woodburn resulting in 30-minute delays, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation. This will greatly impact our morning and evening runs, which will in turn impact the punctuality of our midday runs as well. Because of this and the fact that the Cascades route makes critical connections to and from the Amtrak Cascades in Portland, we have  adjusted ALL runs on this route.

We know this is a MAJOR inconvenience to our riders and we apologize! 😔

SERVICE ALERT – April 1, 2019: Effective Monday, April 1, we will be relocating our temporary stop on the University of Oregon campus from the Clinical Services Building parking lot (Lot 18) on East 18th Street to our new permanent stop across from Hayward Field on Agate Street.
