Trolley Service for Gig Harbor
This summer Pierce Transit, in partnership with a group of Gig Harbor stakeholders, will provide trolley service up and down that steep hill between the historic downtown waterfront and the uptown shopping district.
The demonstration trolley service will run every 30 minutes between 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays; with extended service until 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The service begins July 9, and continues through September 28. More details in the full press release.
The project: the “PT Trolley - Get Around Gig Harbor,” was made possible with the support of a Gig Harbor Community Investment Team, made up of the City of Gig Harbor, the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce, Merchants of Uptown, and the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance.
In light of recent cuts to the overall Pierce Transit budget, we’re wondering if we’ll be seeing more of this kind of partnership as business districts and other groups look to provide transit going forward. Could a similar model of public-private partnerships work to provide transit services elsewhere?
