Portland Short Bus

Dear Beloved Portland Short Bus Customers

We regret to inform you that Portland Short Bus has ceased operation effective July 1st, 2019. It has been a wild 7 years since we started in 2012, but it was time to move on to new things.

We highly recommend that you book your next event with Cascadia Cruiser Inquire here or visit their website and tell them that Portland Short Bus sent you!

Thank you for a wonderful 7 years!
Nicole & Kyle

Portland Short Bus

Hop aboard our short yellow school bus and let us safely whisk you, your friends and/or strangers about to be friends into Portland’s hard-drinking expanse.

Our flagship PDX Urban Wine tour takes you on a wine tasting foray into Portland’s industrial warehouses, trendy tasting rooms, and residential garages where local winemakers ply their trade.

If daytime wine sipping ain’t your thing, we also offer many periodic GUIDED night time bar tours through Portland’s diviest dives, coolest scenester joints, and nakedest nudie bars. Our ever popular FestiBUS is an intoxicating holiday season romp about town.


Seats on our public tours can only be purchased online via our website.

Our buses are also available for private party rentals for a variety of tours, including:

  • Urban Wine Tours
  • Distillery Tours
  • Brewery Tours
  • Wine Country Tours

Private rentals for evening bar crawls are taken on a case by case basis. Contact us for conditions. You might check our friends at Cascadia Cruiser, Shanghai Party Bus, or Old School PDX.

See a public tour on a date when want a private tour? If the tour shows 13 of 13 seats available, that means no one has signed up for the public tour yet, and we would be happy to reserve that date for your private group tour.

Please call (971) 209-2859 or email bus@portlandshortbus.com for more information.

Open to the Public Short Bus Tours

Our tours are meant to be a social experience- they are a fantastic way for you to find new and unexpected friendships. If you have a group of 9 or more people, please consider a private tour rather than purchasing seats on our public tours. Often large groups tend to overwhelm fellow riders who frequently join in ones, twos, or threes.
