What is the Pierce Transit Spanaway Runner?
The Spanaway Runner provides on-demand transportation to the public, connecting students, workers, seniors and those with limited mobility to and from community resources, appointments, school, work and transit hubs within the Spanaway Runner zone (shown in the map below). Trips must have a starting point and destination in the specified Spanaway Runner zone.
The suburban sprawl and rural properties in these areas do not support full-fledged bus service, which makes it difficult for residents to get where they need to go. Runner uses smaller, wheelchair-accessible vehicles to provide trips when and where needed, and to make it easier to reach local and regional transit options.
Things to remember:
No cash fares are accepted. You must use the app or call to book a ride. Vehicles may be flagged down for a ride. Service animals are welcome on board but we cannot accommodate pets. The service is open to anyone but is not designed to accommodate large groups. When booking your trip for more than one person, remember to specify how many people are riding together in your group. This is a pilot project and service may be limited especially at peak times and when events are happening in the zone.
Spanaway Runner service will not operate on the following holidays:
- New Year's Day
- Memorial Day
- July 4th
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
