National Transit Driver Appreciation Day

Monday, March 18, 2019

Whether you’re commuting by bus early in the morning and taking a ride in the evening to visit a friend, Pierce Transit’s bus operators are there for you, day in and day out. They navigate you through unpredictable traffic, construction zones and tough weather conditions to get you where you need to go. They also provide help along the way, assisting people looking for their stop, helping people who may have lost their way and keeping their customers safe on board. They are bus drivers, yes – but they are also our friends, relatives and neighbors. Just like you, they live and work here and care about our community. And like everyone, they appreciate a “thank you” for a job well done.

We know you value our hard-working bus operators, and this month provides a great opportunity to let them know. On Monday, March 18, we’re celebrating Transit Driver Appreciation Day with people from across the country to commend our nation’s hard-working bus drivers. If you appreciate your bus operator, here are some ways you can brighten their day:

SAY THANK YOU
A simple “Thanks!” goes a long way! Operators would also love to hear how their efforts directly impact you. If you always exit through the back door, take a detour to the front to give them a shout-out. It will make their day! You can also give bus operators a shout-out on social media using the Transit Driver Appreciation Day hashtag:  #tdad.

WRITE A CARD
If you’d like, a greeting card with a simple note is a great way to show how much you appreciate everything your bus operator does by giving them words that last longer than a moment.

BRAG ON THEM
Go to Pierce Transit’s website and tell us which operators do an excellent job. It’ll brighten their day and make them rock stars back at the office! On the form below, be sure to include your route number, general location, direction of travel and travel time so we can identify your operator and pass along your note. 

Thank you for helping us recognize this important group of people who keep us moving, day in and day out.

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.
