Fare Revision Proposal

FARE REVISION PROPOSAL

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held by Pierce Transit as part of the Board of Commissioners’ meeting on February 9, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at Pierce Transit’s Training Center, Rainier Room, located at 3720 96th Street SW, Lakewood, Washington. The purpose of the hearing will be to accept oral and written testimony relevant to the fare revision proposal.

On July 14, 2014 the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners authorized amending Pierce Transit Code Section 3.72, Fare Schedule. The fare changes eliminated paper transfers and added an All-Day Pass to the Pierce Transit fare structure. The Gig Harbor Trolley Fares are at a reduced rate as a result of community partnership funds pledged by the City of Gig Harbor to support the Gig Harbor Trolley service. The proposed change to the Trolley Fare adds an All-Day Pass for Pierce Transit Trolley Fare:

Current Trolley Fare Proposed Trolley Fare
Gig Harbor Trolley Cash Fare $.50 $.50
Gig Harbor Trolley Monthly Pass $18.00 $18.00
Gig Harbor Trolley Senior & Disabled Cash Fare with Regional Reduced Fare Permit Free Free
Gig Harbor Trolley Youth Fare Cash Fare $.50 $.50
Gig Harbor Trolley Youth Monthly Pass $18.00 $18.00
Gig Harbor Adult and Youth All-Day Pass NA $1.00


If you cannot attend the public hearing, written comments may be mailed to: Pierce Transit, Attn.: Jay Peterson, PO Box 99070, Lakewood, WA 98496-0070; or email jpeterson@piercetransit.org; or call Customer Service at 253.581.8000. Comments must be received by February 6, 2015.

Registered SHUTTLE customers may obtain specialized transportation to and from the hearing by calling SHUTTLE at 253-581-8000, option 2, from one to five days in advance of the hearing. An interpreter for the hearing impaired will be provided upon request with a minimum notice of two weeks.

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.
