What does the future
of transit look like to you?
Pierce Transit’s vision for the future of public transit revolves around sustainability, innovation, and equity. Since 1979 Pierce Transit has provided innovative transit solutions to our community (most recently our suite of Runner services and introduction of free fares for anyone 18 and younger on all our services). In 2022 we hired a Zero Emissions Fleet Coordinator to tackle the agency’s approach to reducing our carbon footprint and have recently received a grant to increase our electric bus fleet from 9 to 12.
We want to know what you see for the future of public transit – the sky’s the limit!
