Cash Change Returning to Canby Ferry

Starting next week, operators of the Canby Ferry will reinstate the practice of providing cash change to riders.

Previously, riders who paid in cash would be offered $5 prepaid fares in lieu of change. But, starting March 15, cash change will be back, and operators will no longer hand out the $5 prepaid fares, the county announced this week.

The county also said the ferry plans to maintain its “winter” operating hours throughout 2021 because of low ridership after 7 p.m.

The Canby Ferry crosses the Willamette River between Canby and Wilsonville. The ferry runs seven days a week from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. except on major holidays and when the water level rises to 70 feet or higher, or during inclement weather.

Check for regular updates at or by calling the Canby Ferry Information Line at 503-650-3030.
