Bus Route Names Change
Several transit routes operating between Olympia and Tacoma will change route numbers in June, based on specific origin and destination.
Pierce Transit Route 602 (Olympia to Lakewood and Tacoma): Pierce Transit’s Route 603A will be renamed Route 602 to reduce passenger confusion with Intercity Transit’s Route 603.
Intercity Transit Route 605 (Olympia and Lacey to Lakewood and Tacoma): Intercity Transit’s Route 603 trips that serve the Lacey Transit Center will be renamed Route 605. Current Route 603 trips that do not serve Lacey will remain Route 603.
Intercity Transit will add two northbound and two southbound weekday trips to its Olympia Express service. These trips and other schedule adjustments help fill service gaps created by Pierce Transit’s service reductions, also effective June 12.
Intercity Transit Route 603 (Olympia to Lakewood and Tacoma) weekday service:
Southbound: An additional departure from 10th & Commerce in Tacoma at 8:05 a.m.
Northbound: An additional departure from the Olympia Transit Center at 6:30 p.m.
Intercity Transit Route 605 (Olympia and Lacey to Lakewood and Tacoma) weekday service:
Northbound: An additional departure from the Olympia Transit Center at 6:30 a.m.
Southbound: An additional departure from 10th and Commerce in Tacoma at 8 p.m.
Pierce Transit Olympia Express: Reductions by Pierce Transit to its local and Olympia Express service will also take effect Sunday, June 12, including service between Pierce and Thurston Counties. Visit www.piercetransit.org for details.
