Looking Ahead: Service Changes in 2016
In 2016, Pierce Transit’s first service change—the time when we adjust many routes and schedules—will occur in March. Along with regional partners Community Transit, King County Metro, and Sound Transit, we’re transitioning from three service changes per year to two per year in 2016. With longer periods between service changes we’re able to provide our passengers with better continuity of service. Agency staff will have additional time to assess service needs for making improvements prior to the next service change. In addition, this change should help reduce expenses since staff will revise signage, printed schedules, online information, and administrative documents less frequently.
