Route Details

Current routing of 593 as of October 2010

This north-south express bus route runs between South Tacoma and Seattle via Tacoma. This is a peak hour direction only route with seven trips operating on weekdays. In conjunction with routes 590 and 594, five to ten minute service is available between Tacoma Dome Station Zone B and Howell & 9th in Seattle for morning peak service and between Stewart & 9th and Tacoma Dome Station for afternoon peak service.

This is a temporary bus route which is expected to be cancelled in 2012 with the extension of Sounder commuter rail service to South Tacoma. Trips would be converted to route 590 running between Seattle and Tacoma Dome only[2].
