PIerce Transit Gig Harbor Trolley Returns For the Summer
Pierce County, WA – Pierce Transit, in partnership with Gig Harbor stakeholders, will return with the seasonal trolley service in Gig Harbor for the third summer. The PT Trolley – Get Around Gig Harbor! will provide passengers with service every 30 minutes between Borgen Blvd (new), the historic downtown waterfront district and the Uptown shopping district. Specific hours are available at piercetransit.org/pt-trolley. The seasonal Trolley service will run through September 7, 2015.
Fares are $.50 a ride or $1 for a Pierce Transit All Day pass when purchased onboard a trolley with cash. Riders showing a Regional Reduced Fare Permit may ride free. Fares are subsidized by the PT Trolley Partners.
The PT Trolley Route 101 seasonal service is made possible in cooperation with a Gig Harbor Community Investment Team, which is comprised of the City of Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Merchants of Uptown and the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance. “Nothing says summer like seeing the Trolley making its stops. The trolley does a wonderful job of connecting downtown, uptown and now Gig Harbor North areas and all of this within a 30 minute ride. So come aboard and see what fun awaits you in Gig Harbor”, said Pat Schmidt, Board President of the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance.
The PT Trolley will complement existing service on Pierce Transit’s Routes 100 and 102, which currently serve the City of Gig Harbor. During the days and times PT Trolley runs, Route 100 will follow a detour route and adjusted schedules. Passengers can connect to routes 100 and 102 at Kimball Park and Ride.
