Map your trip and find schedules at Pierce Transit’s website. Here’s a few suggestions to get you started:

  1. Take Pierce Transit Route 11 (every 30 minutes) from downtown or the north end, which drops off in the heart of Ruston. A 15 minute walk east puts you at the waterfront.
  2. From Hilltop take the Route 2 into downtown and transfer to Route 11 by crossing the street at 9th St S & Broadway. If coming from further south, take the Route 1 and transfer to the Route 11 (at 9th St S & St Helens Ave).
  3. Take the Route 1 north and east all the way to 6th Ave & Pearl St N, transfer to Route 10 (every 30 minutes) and ride it to N 51st St in Ruston.
