What is the JBLM Runner?
The JBLM Runner is an innovative on-demand stop to stop service specific to military personnel, their families as well as employees needing transportation services to and from the Joint Base Lewis-McChord military base. Riders must show a valid military ID to board one of the eight designated and convenient bus stops. Riders pay their fare using an ORCA pass or by the Passage: Transit Ticketing app, an All Day Pass, or exact cash. Providing these services is a great way to serve our military personnel who sacrifice so much for us daily.
