Limited Access Connections
This is a pilot project to provide first and last mile connections to and from transit centers and bus stops.
It will also help relieve parking congestion by providing rides to and from Sound Transit's Puyallup Sounder Station and provide rides home at night for Pierce College Puyallup students.
Lyft rides will be provided at no cost to the rider in specific areas (or “zones”) within Pierce Transit’s service area, on certain days and at specific times of the day. See map and chart for details.
How To Videos
How Do I Get Started?
Already use Lyft? Great! To access the Limited Access Connections service, you’ll need to use a promo code. Tap your profile picture, then tap promos, enter Promo Code and Apply. Check out the map to find out which code applies to your zone.
New to Lyft? Download the Lyft app on your smart phone and set up an account. Even though rides are free under Limited Access Connections, you’ll need to set up a payment option in your Lyft account. Payment options include credit card, Paypal or prepaid debit card. Then just request rides from within one of the service zones and times.
What if I don’t have a smartphone? You can go to ride.lyft.com or you may call 253-581-8032 and a customer service representative will assist you in requesting a trip.
What if I need a wheelchair accessible vehicle?
We can help with that! You may call 253-581-8032 and a customer service representative will help you request a ride. Accessible vehicles will not be dispatched through the Lyft app at this time.
How many rides can I take using this service? This is a pilot project with limited funding. We want as many people as possible to try it so we can get feedback on the service. Therefore, we are limiting everyone to a maximum of 48 First and Last Mile rides per month.
How do I know where to find my Lyft?
At transit centers and Pierce College Puyallup, look for the signs!
These bright yellow signs help you and your Lyft driver know where safe, accessible drop-off and pick-up points are located. At Puyallup Sounder Station, Lyft may use the yellow curb near the train platform off W. Main Ave. For pick-ups at bus stops, stand in a prominent, safe spot away from the bus pull-out if possible, to be visible to your Lyft driver. At bus stop drop-offs, your Lyft driver should pull in a safe distance from the bus zone, especially if a bus is already at the stop.
