Twin Transit passengers can stop at multiple locations along US Hwy 12 East, with this route terminating in Morton. Please see below for all stops and their frequency. The Brown line will allow riders to connect with all Twin Transit routes, including our express routes to Kelso and and Olympia! Until further notice, all Twin Transit routes are free of charge.

In just under two hours, riders can travel from the Mellen Energy Station in Centralia to the Morton Energy Station near the Chevron station. This route will allow you to connect with Lower Columbia CAP transportation, RiverCities Transit, Cowlitz Tribal transportation, Intercity Transit and Rural Transit.

  • Now you can commute to work opportunities throughout Lewis County, or connect to work opportunities in Cowlitz and Thurston counties.

  • Do you have friends or family that you hope to visit? Hop on the Brown line and visit those you love.
  • By connecting with other regional transit providers, you can even ride public transit all the way to Seattle or Portland International Airport! 

This new service accompanies Twin Transit’s winter route update. We are pleased to offer this new route in order to connect more of our Lewis County residents to essential services and beyond.

Twin Transit will pilot the Brown line through August of 2023, when we will use ridership data and rider feedback to make any necessary adjustments to this route.
