How do I get from the Amtrak Station to the Red Lion on the River Hotel?

If you are staying at the Red Lion on the River and have a choice for your Amtrak stop, we suggest you travel to and from Amtrak’s Vancouver, Washington station rather than Portland’s Union Station (The “Empire Builder,” “Starlight” and the Regional “Cascades” trains all stop at Vancouver). The taxi from Union Station will cost about $30 or you could take the MAX light rail Yellow line to its end at the Expo Center stop and call for a Red Lion free shuttle from the stop. But if you detrain at Vancouver’s Depot, the Red Lion offers free shuttle service to and from the hotel. The shuttle is available from 5:00 am until 11:00 pm daily.
