Spanaway, Parkland & Midland Runner
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.
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 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:
- 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
