Problem with XY Data Coordinate System

I am working on importing XY data for bus stops in a transit system in Southern Washington and creating a buffer to identify population figures for some analysis. I was successful in selecting the Projected Coordinate System NAD_1983_StatePlane_Washington_South_FIPS_4602 in the XY data import window, however, as soon as I included the census file (with the same projected coordinate system), the shapes are about 200 miles apart from each other when they should overlap. Any suggestions on how I might be able to fix this is greatly appreciated.
