Long Range Plan Update Feedback
The LRP Update offers a vision shaped by fiscal and economic realities and is more closely aligned with service hour growth scenarios than the Destination 2040 Long Range Plan, adopted in April 2016. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Long Range Plan Update by downloading the Update below. Your input is valuable so please provide your feedback below....
In 2016, Pierce Transit finalized and adopted its first Long Range Plan, Destination 2040. Its objective was to create “a comprehensive guiding document of the Agency’s vision for providing dependable, safe, efficient, and fully integrated public transportation services throughout the South Sound Region of today, tomorrow, and beyond.”
Since that time, the agency has gone through many positive changes and feels the Long Range Plan is due for a minor update to refocus its goals and objectives.
But unlike the inaugural document, this update offers a “fiscally constrained vision” that is more closely tied to realistic service-hour growth scenarios than the four annual growth rate scenarios (at 2.0 percent, 2.5 percent, and two versions at 3.0 percent; both within and beyond the current service area boundaries) proposed under the Destination 2040 Long Range Plan. To that end, this Update will show what fixed route services and coverage a full funding level (at a 0.9% sales tax rate within the service area boundaries of Pierce County) scenario would offer, based on a 735,000 annual service hours target or 55 percent increase over the 500,130 annual service hours in effect today. Since Pierce Transit is currently providing all the fixed route bus service it can at current funding levels, it is important to still have a plan in place for growth that could be rapidly implemented if additional operating revenues were to ever become available through taxation.
