Runner getting around

Runner, Pierce Transit’s on-demand ride service, has been launched in Puyallup.

The service, which uses passenger vans, picks up and drops off seniors, students, workers, and limited-mobility individuals wherever transit buses can’t, officials said.

More information, including how to request a ride, is at and 253-270-1340.

Fares are $2 for adults and $1 for holders of a regional reduced fare permit. The rides are free for anyone 18 or younger who has a youth ORCA card.

Runner also operates in the Spanaway, Parkland, and Midland areas of Pierce County.
