What is the JBLM Connector?
The JBLM Connector is an innovative on-demand service specific to military personnel needing transportation services to and from the Joint Base Lewis-McChord military base. There are seven designated and convenient locations where military staff can call and be picked up or dropped off. Riders must show their military ID to board, and pay their fare using an ORCA pass, the Hopthru app, an All Day Pass, or exact cash. By calling ahead, riders will access dispatch, who will coordinate a driver and vehicle for their convenience. Providing these services is a great way to serve our military personnel who sacrifice so much for us daily.
