What's New

Your Fife-Milton-Edgewood Community Connector Route is Changing to Serve You Better

Starting March 31st, weekday trip times will be improved on the Route 503 Fife - Puyallup Station.

Route 503 Detour

To improve connections with Sounder trains, Pierce Transit has adjusted several Route 503 trips arriving at or departing from the Puyallup Sounder Station. Also, for 5 morning trips, the bus will stop on the same side of the tracks as the train for easier boarding. With these changes, 3 early afternoon trips to the station will be eliminated. Adjusted trips are shown in yellow:

These times indicate the first 5 trips to the Sounder Station will be stopping first on the south side, then the north, so passengers do not need to walk across the tracks to reach their train. All other trips serve the north side only.


Effective February 16th, 2014

NEW Routing in Downtown Tacoma These routes moved from Commerce Street to Pacific Avenue: Routes 1, 3, 13, 14, and 53. To find your bus stop location, check individual route pages or the Commerce Street and Pacific Avenue map on the back cover panel of The Bus Stops Here.

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.
