Route Details

Current routing of 599 as of October 2010

This north-south express bus route runs between Tacoma and Lakewood with connection to the Sound Transit Sounder Rail system. This route provides two way service with two trips in the non-peak directiona and seven trips in the peak direction during peak hours. Southbound service to Lakewood is timed so that trips do not depart until the Sounder arrives at Tacoma Dome Station. No weekend or holiday service is available.

Fares for this route must be prepaid at station ticket vending machines prior to boarding. Pierce Transit buses provide service on this route[2].

This is a temporary bus route; the 2009 Service Implementation Plan budgeted for this route to be discontinued in 2012 with the extension of Sounder commuter rail services from Tacoma Dome Station to South Tacoma and Lakewood[3]. However, due to funding constraints, the 2011 Draft Service Implementation Plan has provisions for the discontinuation of the route as of June 2011 if approved by the Sound Transit Board of Directors[4].
