News & Announcements
On July 4 Pierce Transit will provide free express bus service for people visiting the Tacoma Freedom Fair along Tacoma’s Ruston Way. Buses will run every 30 minutes from Tacoma Community College (19th and Mildred) and the Tacoma Dome Station (610 Puyallup Ave.) to Old Town near the Freedom Fair. Parking is free at both locations. Service will run every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. sharp, and then resume after the fireworks to transport fair-goers back to Tacoma Community College and the Tacoma Dome Station. For more details visit http://www.piercetransit.org/freedom-fair-express/.
This express service, as well as rides on all Pierce Transit vehicles, will be free all day on July 4 thanks to a sponsorship from the Tacoma Events Commission. Because it is a holiday, all other local Pierce Transit bus service will operate on a Sunday schedule. Pierce Transit routes that do not have Sunday service, including Route 13, will not operate on July 4.
The Tacoma Freedom Fair is the largest Fourth of July festival in the Northwest. Activities at the Freedom Fair begin at 10:30 a.m. and run through the fireworks show which begins just after 10 p.m. More than 150 artists, craft vendors and commercial exhibitors will transform the Ruston Way waterfront into a colorful and bustling market for the day. Other notable events include a kid’s fun zone, live entertainment, a hot rod and custom car show, and the Tacoma Power Air show which will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. For more information on the Tacoma Freedom Fair visit www.freedomfair.com.
Pierce Transit will have a Freedom Fair booth near the Northern Fish Company where fair-goers can get information about all types of transit and view one of Pierce Transit’s trolleys.
