Employee Transit Pass

Evergreen employees, including part-time permanent employees, are eligible for the STAR (State Agency Rider) pass. The STAR pass allows you to ride any Intercity Transit bus, including the express service between Tacoma, and Olympia, at no charge.

The STAR pass can be used on any Intercity Transit bus, any time and for any reason. Use the STAR pass to commute to work or school, for shopping, for recreation or to go to dinner. To get your STAR pass, visit the Parking Services office in the Seminar Building. Important Details About the STAR Pass Program

Bikes on Buses

Bike and ride service is provided on all city and county routes and on Intercity Transit Express service to Tacoma. Many commuters ride their bikes to the nearest bus stop and then ride the bus the rest of the way to work or school. Two bicycles can be carried on any bicycle rack. Space is available on a first-come basis. Intercity Transit Bike & Ride Website
