Want to take a trip to Lacey? You can check out a variety of interesting shops and other fun things to see and do. The best part is that you can get there for only $4 round trip! Simply hop onboard Twin Transit‘s Green Line at the Mellen Street e-Transit Station. The Green Line is an express route with only two stops – one at the Tumwater Transit Hub near the L&I building and the other at the Downtown Olympia Transit Center. The whole trip only takes about 40 minutes in total.
The Green Line runs every 90 minutes, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday (weekdays only). The trip costs $4 per day or $40 per month. Drivers take a break from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., so you’ll want to be sure to take that into account in your planning.
Upon arriving at the Olympia Transit Center, hop on bus 62A Outbound, operated by Intercity Transit, which is free to ride. This bus will make 19 stops and take approximately 20 minutes before arriving at the Lacey Transit Center. The total trip from Centralia to the Lacey Transit Center will only take about an hour.
From there, you can find connections to many other routes, but this transit hub is a great place to hop off and take a look at the surrounding area. The South Sound Center mall and other various fun shops, restaurants, and coffee shops are all within walking distance. Perhaps you can get some food to-go and enjoy a nice picnic in the clean and green Thomas W. Huntamer Park, Long Lake Park, South Plaza Park or West Plaza Park built on the old Lacey drive-in movie theater site.
