Welcome Aboard!

Pierce Transit, in partnership with the City of Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Merchants of Uptown, and the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance, is excited to offer seasonal trolley service in Gig Harbor.


Saturday, May 24 - Monday, September 1, 2014


PT TROLLEY, Pierce Transit’s Route 101, provides convenient service between the historic downtown Gig Harbor waterfront district and the Uptown shopping district. Trolleys run daily every 30 minutes; see enclosed schedules and map for details. Trolleys also connect with other routes at the Kimball Drive Park & Ride, including Route 100.

FARES (PER RIDE)

Fares are subsidized this year by the PT Trolley Partners
  • 50¢ cash fare for Adults (ages 19 and up) and Youth (ages 6 - 18). Drivers do not carry change. Valid transfers will be accepted and issued upon request with cash or ticket payment.
  • FREE for children age five and under.
  • FREE for seniors and individuals with disabilities with valid Regional Reduced Fare Permit*.
  • ORCA cards may be used. Just tap your card on the ORCA logo.
  • Valid monthly PT SHUTTLE passes, Class Passes, and One Ride Tickets will also be honored for fare payment.

Look for Trolley Stop Signs

Trolleys make many stops along the route. Just look for a trolley stop near you, and use the schedules to estimate when the trolley will arrive at your stop. On board, your driver will be happy to help you find the trolley stop nearest your destination.

ALL - ABOARD CANINE COMPANIONS!

Whether human or canine, PT Trolley customers can expect an exceptional level of service. Leashed dogs will be allowed to board at no charge. Our only expectation for owners is that they’re ready to clean up just in case the "unexpected" happens during the ride.

BRING YOUR BIKE

Trolleys have racks that hold bikes. If a bike rack is full, bikes may be brought on board unless it becomes too crowded. Cyclists are responsible for the security of their bikes, and must hold them throughout the ride.

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.
