Transit Watch

When it comes to our safety, we can always use an extra pair of eyes.

The Transit Watch campaign is a nationwide safety and security awareness program designed to encourage the active participation of transit passengers and employees in working together to maintain a safe environment. The campaign provides information and instructions so you’ll know what to do and who to contact in the event of an emergency in a transit setting. Pierce Transit Transit Watch invites you to be the “eyes and ears” of our local transit system.

Pierce Transit maintains and operates a non-emergency crime-reporting system that is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. You may report a crime by phone or email (calls and reports will remain anonymous upon request):


Call the Transit Watch hotline at 253.581.8040. Voicemail messages are responded to promptly! Or Email us at pubsafety@piercetransit.org

Emails will be received the next business day, Monday through Saturday.

In an emergency, call 9-1-1.


For the safety and security of everyone, Pierce Transit has established its own police force. Passengers are an important part of our security system. Make it hard on criminals by locking your car, leaving valuables at home or taking them with you and being aware of your surroundings. If you notice someone or something suspicious — such as someone looking into parked cars or an unattended package — please notify your coach operator or call 911 immediately.

All buses have two-way radios and alarm systems to notify our dispatchers if there is a problem or need for assistance. We also have plain-clothes officers on board some buses and security cameras at some park & rides.

Please report all crimes on Pierce Transit property to assist us in identifying and reducing problem activity. See our Rules of the Road and the applicable state and local laws.

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.
