Spanaway, Parkland & Midland Runner

COMING SOON

What is the Pierce Transit Spanaway-Parkland-Midland Runner? 

The Spanaway Runner will provide point to hub on-demand transit connecting special needs populations such as seniors and those with limited mobility to and from points of origin to community and transit hubs within the Spanaway Runner zone as well as within a two-mile buffer from the zone. Trips must have a point of origin and a point of termination in the specified Spanaway Runner zone. The low-density development patterns in these areas do not merit full- fledged bus services and can thereby create a “transit desert,” but instead will use smaller wheel chair accessible vehicles to complete on-demand trips.Spanaway Zone Maps
how do i get a ride icon

How do I get a ride?

  • Book trips using your smart phone (app to be determined at a later date)
  • If you don’t have a smart phone, you can call to schedule your trip.
  • You can also catch a PT Runner while it’s out and about; just walk up and request a ride. Look for the sign on the dashboard indicating availability.
what is the cost to pay icon

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 no fareboxes on board the Pierce Transit Runner vehicles so cash fares cannot be accepted.

There are three ways to pay:

  1. Use the Passage: Transit Ticketing app with mobile fare of your choice (One Ride Ticket, All Day Pass or 30-Day Pass)
  2. Show the driver your valid ORCA card
  3. Show the driver your valid All Day Pass

Trip Planner Help

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.
