It was a 3.5 hours driving last time I visited Newport (as an out of state visitor). How do people live in Newport or nearby go to PDX airport or return to Newport? If me, I prefer an one way car rental both ways (pick up rental car at Newport and drop at airport, vise versa). Is there such rental car service over there?

Drive. Yes they have rentals but one way gets out of sight pricewise. There is also a shuttle plane in and out of business, and back in again, at times. Coos Bay has an Airport with full service to San Francisco and Portland.

Along the central/north coast, it's called "going to the valley" - that might mean anything from a Ducks game in Eugene to a flight out of PDX, and everything in between. That's one of the reasons there was so much pressure in Newport to get those Highway 20 upgrades to Corvallis finished, and so much disappointment when that whole project fell to pieces.

There may be Greyhound service to Portland several times a day. The MAX from the Greyhound station to the airport isn't a long walk but a little on the dicey side. A better option would be to MAX that stops at the Greyhound station to Pioneer Courthouse Square and transfer to the MAX airport line.

Literally! Both the Geotech and the Civil Engineers blew it.

Greyhound to Portland is a five hour trip costing from $48.00 to $64.00 and leaves at 5:45am and arrives at 10:30am. It is by a local shuttle Called VRB to Corvallis, and a transfer to Portland. The Corvallis layover is 6:55 to 8:35.

That Greyhound trip is brutal because then you need to trek to the airport! VRB may be the better option.
