NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
PROPOSED PIERCE TRANSIT POLICIES
IN ACCORDANCE WITH TITLE VI OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held as part of the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners' meeting on February 11, 2013. The meeting begins at 4:00 pm and will be held in the Rainier Room of the Pierce Transit Training Center at 3720 96th Street SW, Lakewood, Washington. The purpose of the hearing is to allow public comment on proposed Pierce Transit policies in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

These policies define the procedures related to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which states: "no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." As required by the Federal Transit Administration's new Title VI Circular 4702.1B, Pierce Transit will hold this hearing on proposed policies related to "major service change," "disparate impact," and "disproportionate burden."

The circular affects transit providers receiving federal funding in urbanized communities of more than 200,000 people and operating at least 50 vehicles during peak service hours. These agencies must establish policies that define the threshold for major service changes and the determination of disparate impact/disproportionate burden applied to Title VI service and fare equity analyses. These analyses will examine the impact to minority and low-income populations of any fare change or major service change proposed by Pierce Transit.

If approved, the proposed Title VI policies will take effect by March 12, 2013.

Information regarding the New Title VI Policies Draft is available HERE or by calling Pierce Transit at (253) 581-8000. If you are unable to attend the public hearing, written comments will be accepted through February 8, 2013. Please address your comments to:

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.
