Tuesday June 2, 2020:
Squaxin Transit is adding additional routes to coincide with Mason Transit (MTA) and Grays Harbor Transit (GHT).
Below you will see the NEW ROUTES connecting to MTA and GHT in McCleary.
With cities starting to open back up, many of them are wondering how to manage their public transportation systems. It is so important, at this time, to take precautions. Without a vaccine or a cure for COVID-19, opening up is risky…
Therefore, we want to add connections to MTA and GHT transit lines in small steps… and continue to open with success!
Reminder: Passengers will be required to wear a mask at all times. If you are ill, or experiencing any type of symptoms, we request that you to please stay home! If you need transportation to the Health Clinic due to any type of illness, please call for special transportation.
Below please review our new schedule. If you have any questions, give us a call at (360) 280-7612 or (360) 789-5936. If you are unable to reach us, we are either driving or assisting passengers. Please leave a message and we will return your call at our earliest opportunity.

Effective March 31, 2020, Squaxin Tribal Transit is providing food bank and grocery delivery as well as prescription drop off/pick up for tribal members and HOMEBOUND individuals living within our service area within ten (10) miles of the Squaxin Island Tribe Reservation. We also provide transit services for life sustaining medical appointments.
Grocery stores that offer online purchases for pick-up may include Fred Meyer, Safeway, and Walmart.
This service is TEMPORARY and implemented with the support of the Washington State Department of Transportation in response to COVID-19 outbreak.
Like others, we are navigating through the unknown and are providing transportation services to our tribal members as well as our rural community.
Your patience at this time is greatly appreciated.
If you live within our service area, and in need of food or medications, please contact our Transit Coordinator, Tammy Ford at (360) 789-5936 or (360) 432-3888.
We will update any changes on our Squaxin Island Tribe website and in our Daily Scoop.
As a community, we cannot reiterate enough to isolate our Elders from younger children. During this time, please utilize Facetime, or other virtual means to stay in touch with your family so we can get through this as soon as possible.
