Regular one-way adult fares between Seattle and Portland start at $26. All Amtrak Cascades trains require reservations.
The Oregon Department of Transportation will add more buses between Portland and Eugene to supplement train travel, and Oregon’s trains will run on their weekend schedule Nov. 23-27. For information, see the Amtrak Cascades website, amtrakcascades.com.
