Pierce Transit to resume Washington State Fair express bus service

Pierce Transit officials announced Monday they will resume express bus service for Washington State Fair visitors.

Between Sept. 5 and Sept. 21, fair guests can catch Pierce Transit buses from South Hill Mall and Lakewood Towne Center to the Washington State Fair Events Center with limited stops. Bus service will run hourly from approximately 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and run every 30 minutes from approximately 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Fares are set at Pierce Transit’s regular rates of two dollars for adults, 75 cents for youth age six to 18 years, and free for age five and younger. Riders may use their ORCA cards for the service.

Pierce Transit is excited to offer express bus service to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup for the first time since 2010,” said Pierce Transit Public Relations Officer Carol C. Mitchell. “Customer feedback indicated the community has missed the service and looks forward to its return.”
