PIERCE TRANSIT
BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
NOTICE OF SPECIAL STUDY SESSION MEETING

Date: April 6, 2017

Pierce Transit is considering potential applications of high capacity transit (HCT) along the Pacific Avenue S/SR 7 Corridor. An HCT Feasibility Study for the Corridor began in February 2017, with the intent of selecting a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the Corridor by spring 2018. Should the LPA be determined to be a HCT mode, the project would proceed through environmental documentation and funding applications and, eventually, into design and construction.

A Purpose and Need Statement is a critical element of the study since it documents what Pierce Transit intends to accomplish with the project (Purpose) and the problems with the current service that the project would address (Need). The Purpose and Need Statement is supported by goals that are linked to the project purpose (typically with one goal for each primary element of the Purpose Statement). In turn, each goal is supported by one or more evaluation measures that are used to evaluate specific alternatives. The evaluation measures should be non-duplicative, non-distracting (e.g., only measure things that inform the ultimate decision), and easy to understand by policymakers and the public.

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.
