Effective January 1, 2020, the Coast to Valley Express, a service provided by Benton County Transportation, will be fareless for children ages 5 and under (must be accompanied by an adult). Our partners at Lincoln County Transit will be making the same change to their fare structure.

For passengers traveling the full distance of the route (Albany/Corvallis area to Newport), the new fare structure will be as follows:

  • Adults (ages 13 & up): $10
  • Seniors (ages 60+), youths (6-12), and disabled: $7
  • Children (ages 5 & under, while accompanied by an adult): $0

Come and explore the Oregon Coast with your family in 2020 and let us take care of the transportation for you! Happy New Year from Benton County!

If you have any questions concerning the fare changes, please contact Brad Dillingham at 541-754-1748 or by email at
