Gig Harbor Trolley service gets underway June 1

Pierce Transit’s Gig Harbor Trolley (Route 101) service will get underway June 1, with service seven days a week through Sept. 2. The route will run between the historic downtown Gig Harbor waterfront district, Harbor Hill and the Uptown shopping district. Trolleys will run every 30 minutes, and connect with other routes at the Kimball Drive Park & Ride.

There will be special, supplemental Gig Harbor Trolley service on Saturday, June 2, to serve the Maritime Yo’ Ho’ Harbor Grande Parade. The supplemental service will operate that day from 8:30 a.m. through 10:30 a.m. from the Kimball Park & Ride. Buses will take passengers directly to a temporary bus stop on Judson Street, just one block from the parade. Express service back to the Kimball Park & Ride will resume after the parade between approximately 10:45 and 11 a.m. After the express service ends festival-goers can still return to the Kimball Park & Ride via the regular Gig Harbor Trolley.

Trolley fare for each ride is $.50 for adults (age 19 and up) and youth (ages 6-18), and the service is free for children ages five and under. The service is also free for seniors and persons with disabilities, with presentation of a Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP). Adults and youth may purchase a Pierce Transit All Day Pass for just $1 when purchased aboard the Trolley. ORCA cards, valid passes and One Ride Tickets may also be used for payment.

The Trolley route has been extended this year to reach Borgen Boulevard, operating on a one-way loop north up Burnham Drive NW, east on Borgen Boulevard and south on Peacock Hill Ave. NW. The new route will give riders access to more shopping and also serve Heron’s Key senior living retirement community, giving those residents easy access to other parts of the Gig Harbor community.

In past years, the Pierce Transit Route 100 has been detoured during Trolley service. This year the Route 100 will not change while the Trolley is running, offering more convenient service for commuters.

The Gig Harbor Trolley is a partnership between the City of Gig Harbor, the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Merchants of Uptown, the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance and Pierce Transit.

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.
