Olympia Express (Route 620) passengers are familiar with the construction at the Martin Way Park & Ride. Work to provide "bus only" direct access from the northbound I-5 on-ramp into the park & ride, a new bus stop adjacent to the on-ramp, and related facility updates began in March 2023.
Starting Sunday, Nov. 19, riders heading north to Lakewood from the Martin Way Park & Ride will board buses at the new “flyer” stop, located on the northbound ramp to I-5. Northbound buses will no longer enter the facility, so passengers will need to catch buses to Lakewood at the flyer stop. This change will speed up boarding and reduce travel times.
Passengers of both directions should be aware that southbound Route 620 buses to Olympia will enter the Park & Ride from the northbound I-5 on ramp, but will not stop at the flyer stop. Southbound buses will depart from the current temporary stop location. This will continue until the permanent stop location for the southbound direction is completed.
