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.

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.
