HOW DO I INITIATE A TOUR OPERATOR FACILITIES USE AGREEMENT?
WHAT IF I DON’T QUALIFY FOR A FACILITIES USE AGREEMENT?
If you do not qualify for a Facilities Use Agreement, the Port of Astoria also offers an Application for Access Permit. The vendor shall provide the Port all required documentation and payment before the Port will grant the annual Access Permit.
Upon granting an Access Permit, the Port authorizes the Applicant (subject to all terms and conditions of the agreement) to use the designated location for passenger unloading from tour vehicles. This permit is for no other purpose.
