Do you ride the bus? Major service change goes into effect today

Intercity Transit has made some major changes to their route structure, and those changes took effect this morning, Sunday, September 23rd. If you ride any of the following routes, you’ll want to check Intercity Transit’s website for specific information on the service change.

Route 12 – instead of serving Tumwater Square, the bus will follow the old 43/44 route to the Courthouse and SPSCC, and continue down Barnes to Linwood and join with the 12 routing that it had before. It no longer serves Capitol Way, Tumwater Square, or 2nd Avenue.

Route 41 – schedule changes only. The peak-hour “every 15 minute” extra buses have been cancelled.

Route 42 – this route will now serve the Olympia Transit Center, continue to the old 43/44 route to the Courthouse and SPSCC, and serve the Jail and Family Court along the old 42 routing and return to SPSCC and OTC. It no longer serves Black Lake Blvd or Cooper Point Road near the Auto Mall.

Routes 43/44 have been discontinued. Refer to routes 12, 42, and 68 for service in their former areas.

Route 45 will now additionally serve the Capital Medical Center, Kaiser Road and Mud Bay Road.

Route 47 will also use Kaiser Road instead of Yauger Way. It will still serve the Capital Medical Center via Capital Mall Drive.

Route 60 no longer serves St. Francis House

Route 62A now serves areas of NE Lacey, including Orion Drive and Willamette Rd. It eliminates westbound service on Martin after Galaxy.

Route 68 no longer serves the Olympia Transit Center. It starts at the Lacey Transit Center and serves Tumwater Square along prior routing, and now serves 2nd Avenue, Tumwater Hill, SPSCC, and the Capital Mall before heading back to Lacey.
