This year there will be special, supplemental service on Saturday, June 3, to serve the Maritime Yo Ho Harbor Grande Parade. The supplemental service will operate that day from 8:30 a.m. through 10:30 a.m. from the Kimball Park & Ride. Buses will express passengers to a temporary bus stop on Judson Street, just one block from the parade. Service back to the Kimball Park & Ride will resume after the parade and will operate approximately 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Trolley fares for each ride are $.50 for adults (age 19 and up) and youth (ages 6-18), and the service is free for children ages five and under. The service is also free for seniors and persons with disabilities, with presentation of a Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP). Adults and youth may purchase a Pierce Transit All Day Pass for just $1 when purchased aboard the Trolley. ORCA cards may be used, and valid passes and One Ride Tickets may also be used for payment.
