Pierce Transit is in a time of transition from a bus system that was designed four decades ago to one that better meets the traveling needs of the region today, tomorrow, and into the future. In order to determine the best ways of moving forward, we are exploring important questions about the design, functionality, and goals of the system, such as:
- Is the current route network the right design for the future?
- How well does it fit the community plans of the area?
- Does Pierce Transit make it easy for you to get connected?

- Report your activities once a month.
TO THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERINGAfter your stop is adopted, your name will appear on a sign which will be posted at that stop. You may also receive recognition in one or more of our publications. Recycling is encouraged, and any profit from the sale of recyclable items is yours to keep.

Heard a “Talking” Bus Yet?Listen for automatic stop and route announcements while traveling on Pierce Transit and Sound Transit buses. Route and destination announcements required by the Americans with Disabilities Act are made by the new automatic announcement system we call trax each time a bus door opens at a stop. In addition, upcoming stop names are announced on the buses to keep passengers informed about the next stop coming up on that route.
Pierce Transit needs your help to ensure that the trax system is helpful and useful to you, our riding public. Please report any problems with the timing of stop announcements, interior volume, or pronunciation issues so we can look into fixing them. Report problems by filling out a customer comment card (located at
the front of the bus), sending an e-mail to PTcustomer@piercetransit.org, or filling out our online form. When reporting issues with announcements, please be as specific as possible. Include the route, direction of travel, time of day, vehicle number and a complete description of the problem.
