- Getting Around
What is the Pierce Transit Runner?Pierce Transit Runner is on-demand public transportation that allows you to book rides straight from your phone within dedicated micro transit zones. Currently, we offer the JBLM, Ruston, and Tideflats Runner services. Each service has its own zone or designated pick-up/drop-off spots where this may be an ideal option for “first and last mile” connections between your starting point and other transit services. Point to point trips are also allowed anywhere within some Runner zones.
What does it cost to ride and how do I pay?Pierce Transit Runner has the same fare as riding a Pierce Transit bus:
- $2.00 for an adult
- $1.00 for youth or those with Regional Reduced Fare Permit
There are three ways to pay:
- Use the Passage: Transit Ticketing app with mobile fare of your choice (One Ride Ticket, All Day Pass or 30-Day Pass)
- Show the driver your valid ORCA card
- Show the driver your valid All Day Pass

CLEAN & DISINFECT VEHICLE
After each ride team members pay special attention to spray the surfaces that they and passengers frequently come in contact with.
HEALTHY DRIVERS If a team member has a mild illness, respiratory symptoms, or has a fever (100.4 F or above), they stay home and keep away from others.
GOOD HYGIENE Team members wash their hands frequently for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to disinfect their hands. They don’t touch their face with unwashed hands. They do cover a cough or sneeze. Team members have masks and gloves. They may also use gowns, face shields and a plastic barrier in the vehicle.
