Transit Bus Passes Now Available at Timberland Libraries

Mason Transit Authority (MTA) bus passes are now available for purchase at Timberland Regional Library (TRL) branches in Mason County including Hoodsport, North Mason (Belfair), and Shelton. The partnership between Mason Transit and TRL gives transit riders more options to purchase passes at locations convenient to them and at no additional cost.

“Mason Transit is happy to partner with the Timberland Regional Library to bring an option to MTA riders for purchasing bus passes,” said Danette Brannin, Mason Transit’s General Manager. “Partnerships make communities stronger and this reflects another great opportunity to better serve the community.”

Bus Passes available at the libraries will include:
• Adult (Ages 18-64) Out-of-County Monthly Pass: $28
• Youth (Ages 7-17) Out-of-County Monthly Pass: $18
• Reduced & Senior (Ages 65+) Out-of-County Monthly Pass: $9
• Active Duty Military (with current ID) & Children Under 7: No Charge
• Summer Youth Adventure Pass (Memorial Day – Labor Day): $18

Timberland Regional Library Director Cheryl Heywood said, “This important partnership was created to give Mason County residents more convenient options for purchasing bus passes. Your local library is more than just your life-long learning connection, we are your go-to place for community services as well.”

The three additional locations to purchase bus passes bring the number of locations that sell bus passes to eight, with six in Mason County, one each in Kitsap and Thurston counties.

This partnership is the third TRL has forged with a county transit agency as Grays Harbor Transit was first back in 2016, followed by Intercity Transit in Thurston County last year.
