Destination 2040

Vision: Pierce Transit has adopted a Long Range Plan (LRP) for Horizon Year 2040 – to be titled Destination 2040 - as a comprehensive guiding documentation of the agency’s vision and blueprint for providing dependable, safe, efficient, and fully integrated public transport services throughout the South Sound region of today, tomorrow, and beyond.

So why create a Long Range Plan…?

  • The LRP was developed to establish a vision for the agency. It will then provide guidance or direction as we begin developing implementation strategies for capital projects and service improvements over both the mid- and long-term.
  • It answers, “Where do we want to go and how to we plan to get there?” by creating a 2040 blueprint for Pierce Transit.
  • It cites and integrates the agency’s Strategic Plan for 2015-2020, as well as informs the six-year Transit Development Plan which is revised and updated annually.
  • In order to meet obligatory requirements under the USDOT’s Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) multi-year transportation authorization of 2012 and Fast Act of 2015 that transit agencies’ Long Range Plans now be performance based.

Future Service Scenarios

Future Services Scenarios

Destination 2040 lays out a vision to expand transit service to meet the country's growth. Pierce County is growing. New residents need public services: schools, parks, water, sewer, and transportation. Investing in transit is an efficient use of our region’s limited transportation dollars—it takes fewer resources to move more people by transit.

Trip Planner Help

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
