Weekend All-Day Pass

Weekend All-Day Passes are good for unlimited rides on local Pierce Transit service on the day the pass is purchased. The cost is two times your regular one-way fare. Weekend All-Day Passes can be purchased on all PT buses on weekends, and on any holiday that PT operates Saturday or Sunday service. Tell your driver you want to buy a Weekend All-Day Pass and pt the appropriate cash fare in the farebox. Your pass will actually be an uncut bus transfer. Show the transfer whenever you board a PT bus and ride as much as you like. Weekend All-Day Passes are valid on Pierce Transit only.


Regional Passes

ORCA Cards

ORCA smart cards simplify fares and transfers. You can use an ORCA card like cash to pay your bus fare. The card has an Electronic Purse (E-Purse) that stores cash fare value. Your ORCA Card can be used for the fare that covers the trips you take most often. When you take a bus with a higher fare, just pay the difference with cash or E-purse. You can store value from $5 to $300 on your ORCA card. To learn more, Click Here.

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
