Bus riding tidbits:

  • Pay exact fare when boarding, EXCEPT in Seattle, where you pay when get OFF bus.
  • Consider getting an ORCA card (See Sound Transit schedule for information)
  • Don’t forget to pick up an Intercity Transit (Thurston County) and Sound Transit (Regional Pierce/King/Snohomish Counties) schedules
  • Tell the driver where you’re going if you’re unsure where you need to get off the bus
  • Make sure you’re using a current schedule… check online to be sure.
  • When travelling northbound, driving to the Lakewood Station (exit 125) gives us more options for your southbound return trip.  The Sounder train will be coming to the Lakewood station in October!
