GROUND TRANSPORTATION >>

Seaside Municipal's parking ramp is less than a block from Highway 101, with easy access to countless North Coast destinations. Options for getting around include:

  • Walk to any of numerous attractions and restaurants close by; downtown Gearhart is less than a mile, and downtown Seaside is just over 2 miles away. For the lowdown on walking destinations, visit the  Attractions section of this site.

  • Bike to where you need to go;  we have a few bikes that are left outside in good weather, you'll find them on the porch of the electrical building near the airport gate, or if any of the local hangar tenants is around you can ask one of us. If those aren't available you can rent bicycles and surreys at the  Prom Bike Shop, 503-738-8251, about a 1 mile walk southwest at the corner of 12th and Holladay. The  Attractions page describes how to get there from the airport.

  • Car Rentals - Lum's Auto Center's rental department in Warrenton advertises free shuttle service within 10 miles which should work for 56S - unconfirmed, so if you try them, let us know! Enterprise and Hertz are a little further north in Astoria; the last time we checked they wouldn't bring cars down to Seaside but let us know if you find out otherwise.

  • Taxi - Alpha Shuttle 503-440-7777 and Seaside Road Runners, 971-777-1025 are both in Seaside and can get you into town quickly for low rates. Taxi companies in Astoria are Mom's Cab 503-325-8210 and Royal Cab, 503-325-5818.

  • Restaurant / Hotel Shuttle - some hotels and restaurants will provide airport pickup for customers, time-permitting. A few that have been known to do so are Shilo Inn Hotel and Restaurants, located on the oceanfront in the center of town, 503-738-9571, and  Doogers Seafood & Grill Restaurant, 503-738-3773.

  • The Astoria-Seaside Bus, operated by Sunset Empire Transit 503-861-7433, www.nworegontransit.org runs along highway 101 which goes right past the airport, going south through Seaside to Cannon Beach, and north to Warrenton and Astoria.
