Hut Shuttle Bus from Portland to Corvallis and Back

Event Description

We have organized a FREE shuttle bus with a local company named HUT Shuttle (the bus has WIFI!) to help create a multi-city Beer and Blog!

The bus is sponsored by Calapooia Brewing and they not only made your ride free, but are providing refreshments for the trip! (It is BEER and blog)

With wifi on the bus, please tweet, blog, and have fun all the way down to Corvallis. Tag your tweets/photos/etc with #WIN09 and we will see you on the Tweet TV at the event!

And someone may want to bring some an ipod with speakers if you want tunes!

The itinerary looks something like this. It might be faster, but we're allowing for some fudge factor (traffic). Doubt it will affect the time coming back, but its added anyways.

Southbound:

2:50 pm:
Portland pick-up @ The Nines Hotel
loading/valet/etc area in front,
on SW Morrison between 5th & 6th.

3:00 pm: Leave Portland

4:15 pm:
Salem Pick-up @ Red Lion
3301 Market St. NE
W. of I-5 at exit 256

5:00 pm: Arrive at CH2M Hill Alumni Center, OSU, in Corvallis

Northbound:

10:00 pm: Depart In Front of CH2M Hill Alumni Center, OSU, Corvallis

11:00 pm: Salem Dropoff @ Red Lion

12:15 am: Portland Dropoff @ The Nines Hotel

Salem riders: please try to get to the Red Lion a bit early as the bus may show up earlier than the listed time.

I'm deeming Dawn Foster & Bryan Stearns as the unofficial "people in charge" :). However, if there are any issues contact me (Jason) at @protherj on twitter. I'll send my phone/email in a short email blast.

Not going to make the shuttle to @IgniteCorvallis tonight, I'm still feeling ookie & coughing, so there's an open seat. I really do not want to get anyone else sick (although I'm probably not contagious) or annoy the whole bus with my coughing. Have fun kiddies! Hopefully there will be a live stream.

I'm going to have to pull out for work reasons, so hopefully that will open up a space for someone else. Sorry for the trouble last minute, but priorities beckon...

I understand that last MAX to Llyod Center (Blue Line) stops running at 12:25am. If you are planning to park at Llyod Center, that may be cutting it a bit close, time wise.

We have hit capacity for the bus. Jason will shut down the RSVP system here shortly. Thank you everyone for joining us in Corvallis. Have fun one the bus. See you tomorrow!

You can park for free at Llyod Center and take Max downtown for free.

Is there still room on the Shuttle from Portland?

here's my parking solution: i don't own a car, and i'm taking the bus to the nines hotel. i'll see if someone wants to bum me a ride back to whiffies or closer when we get back.

Ken - I know nothing about parking downtown :-(, but the SW 4th & Yamhill SmartPark garage looks like it's open until 1am: a href="http://www.portlandonline.com/smartpark/index.cfm?c=35511&a=113927">http://www.portlandonline.com/smartpark/index.cfm?c=35511&a=113927> .. they even have real-time availability here: a href="http://www.downtownportland.org/">http://www.downtownportland.org/> (215 spaces as of 3pm Weds).

Anyone else have any experience with late-night downtown parking?

Where can we park near the Portland departure location? It needs to be somewhere that doesn't lock up after midnight.
