Traveling to Corvallis from Outside of Oregon

Corvallis relies on Portland and Eugene for the nearest major airports. From either city, you can then arrange transportation to Corvallis. Most participants fly into Portland (PDX) and take a shuttle bus run by Hut Airport Shuttle to Corvallis. Check the current schedule and fees online.

Airports: The Portland Airport (PDX) and Eugene Airport (EUG) are the nearest airports. The Portland Airport is a large international airport with many international flights and is approximately 1.5 hours from Corvallis. The Eugene Airport is a small regional airport with only a few domestic flights available and is approximately 1 hour from Corvallis. From either airport, you can arrange transportation to Corvallis. There is also an airport in Salem, the Salem Municipal Airport (SLE), though this currently only has flights within the U.S.

Transportation to Corvallis from the Airport: There are several options available for transportation from either the Portland or Eugene Airport to Corvallis. The most convenient and efficient transportation to Corvallis is the Hut Airport Shuttle. The shuttle will pick you up at the airport at a pre-arranged time and will drive you directly to Corvallis. The second most convenient transportation to Corvallis is car rental. Traveling by bus or train is also an option. In both Portland and Eugene the bus and train stations are not located near the airports, and do not have direct local bus service to the bus nor train stations.

Bus: For information about bus service from Portland to Corvallis or from Eugene to Corvallis, check the Greyhound website. To travel from Portland Airport to the Portland bus station (Union Station) you can take the light rail system (MAX) or the public bus system (TriMet). There is no bus service from the Eugene Airport to the Eugene bus station. You will have to take a shuttle or taxi from the Eugene Airport to the Eugene bus station.
