The Choice is Yours
The COVID-19 pandemic changed life as we know it—and it may have changed us individually as well, from our morning routines to our life goals and priorities. It’s important to remember and recognize what everyone endured. More importantly to recognize how our habits changed and how certain aspects of our life improved. It's time for a new day and a new way.
There are many things we have discovered about ourselves and the communities we live in during this time. We learned masks are useful tools to preventing the spread of COVID-19 and common flu. We learned there's alternative ways to doing things such as telehealth. While there are still problems for which you need to see a doctor in person, the pandemic introduced a new urgency to what had been a gradual switchover to online platforms.
While everyone’s situation is different, many have seen that it’s possible to be resilient in a crisis. People have practiced self-care in a multitude of ways during the pandemic as they were forced to adjust to new work schedules, change their gym routines, and cut back on socializing. Many started seeking out new strategies including how they commute.
Pierce Transit has had challenges too, but we have provided service to our community every day during the pandemic. We have taken this opportunity to re-evaluate and improve our services. These have included providing microtransit solutions, commute solutions for employers, safe working and traveling environments, and contactless digital services to help commuters get where they're going. While the world may look a little different, the one thing that has remained true is Pierce Transit has been there for you. It's time to think and act to make change
NEW things in transit to make your DAY easier.
Microtransit is an "ON-DEMAND," easy-to-use service that makes getting to “regular” transit easier. It may fill the gaps when you need a ride during hours when buses are less frequent, or in areas where full-size buses can’t travel. Our microtransit service is called Pierce Transit Runner. Runner fares are the same as bus fares and All Day Passes make it easy to use both services. Find out where you can go on Runner!
Transit continues to be a safe option. Pierce Transit is cleaning and disinfecting our buses regularly and filtering the air onboard. It's up to all of us to be responsible, and protect our neighbors by staying home when we are sick.
New simplified fares and signup make vanpooling even easier. Fewer people are needed now to start a new group, it’s easy to know up front how much your fare will be, and it’s simple to pay your fare online. Vanpool fares cover gas, insurance and maintenance of the vehicle. We even have a new part-time Vanpool rider service!
Pierce Transit is making it easier to plan and pay for transit trips, in contactless ways. With our partner apps and web-based regional Trip Planner, reliable and accurate schedules and “live bus”/real-time information is at your fingertips.
