Pierce Transit’s "Transit to Trails" summer event series is back, with the first 2019 event taking place Thursday, June 27. The event will start at the Tacoma Dome Station bus platform at 4:45 p.m., where riders will catch the Pierce Transit Route 400 bus to the Puyallup Sounder Station. Along the route, Fife Mayor Kim Roscoe will provide information about the existing Riverwalk Trail and explain the strides being made on a new, regional trail between Tacoma and Puyallup.
After the ride, event participants are invited to attend the Puyallup Watershed Initiative
’s public forum on the Tacoma to Puyallup Trail, where they can learn more about the project, ask questions and offer input. There will be two options to return to Tacoma Dome Station as a group, at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m.
The schedule will be as follows:
- 4:45 p.m. to 5:25 p.m. – Ride the Route 400 from the Tacoma Dome Station Bus Platform to the Puyallup Station
