Twin Transit Jacket Drive a Success

This month, Twin Transit’s Lesley Jackson rallied the team around an important cause – collecting coats for those in need.

In total, the group collected 70 coats: 30 adult jackets for the Lewis County Gospel Mission and 40 kids’ coats for Immanuel Lutheran Church’s kids’ closet.

“The whole effort was a huge success,” said Twin Transit Community Relations Director Andrea Culletto. “Our team got into the spirit and donated so many more coats than we’d even dreamed. Their kindness never ceases to amaze me. We’re especially grateful for Lesley, who is always thinking of ways we can better support our community.”

March Moving!

In March of 2020, while we remodel our Twin Transit office on Locust Street, our office staff will temporarily move to: 1638 Bishop Rd, Chehalis, WA 98532. Same phone number: 360-330-2072

Purchase your day/monthly bus passes using the Token Transit app, available via the link on our website homepage, or on the app store.

Or purchase your monthly paper passes at either Shop N Kart/Fullers or Centralia Safeway until our office staff returns to Locust Street in the fall.

Lewis County Listens – Vision 2025

Student Bus Passes Now Available at Key Schools

Twin Transit has partnered with local schools to create an exciting new student bus pass program! Students at Centralia High School and W.F. West can now get a semester-long bus pass for only $10 – right at their school.

This makes it easier for kids to get around town, to after-school jobs, and access upper level educational opportunities. Plus, the spring pass extends through the summer months, giving students access to the Boys and Girls Club, local pools, libraries and more.

W.F. West students can buy their pass at the W.F. West ASB Office. Centralia High School students can purchase their pass at the CHS main office.

The program will roll out at Futurus High School and Turning Point soon.

New Books on the Bus Program

Twin Transit recently launched a new Books on the Bus program in partnership with Timberland Regional Library, Shakespeare & Company and Rotary!

It’s just like it sounds: little free libraries in each Twin Transit bus. How cool is that?!

Hop on the bus, borrow a book, read it at your leisure, and return it to the book holder when you’re done – then repeat!

Timberland Regional Library and Shakespeare & Company are stocking these rolling libraries with a wide variety of books, including fiction, non-fiction, teen and children’s titles. The program will make good literature more readily available, enhance literacy, and provide hours of uplifting entertainment. After all, there’s nothing better than a good book!

This program coincides with the launch of our new student bus pass program, which has been created in partnership with Centralia High School, Futurus, and W.F. West.

This program allows high school students to get a semester-long bus pass for only $10 – right at their school. This makes it easier for kids to get around town, to after-school jobs, and access upper level educational opportunities.
