Pierce Transit to Implement Service Change Sept. 3
August 28, 2023
Pierce Transit will implement its twice-yearly service change on Sunday, Sept. 3. Details of changes by route are available at PierceTransit.org/pierce-transit-routes. Service change highlights include:
- Several regular Pierce Transit routes will have schedule changes, so make sure and check your route at PierceTransit.org/pierce-transit-routes before you go.
- Route 57 will have route and bus stop changes to avoid an overlap in service with Sound Transit’s Hilltop Tacoma Link extension; these changes will occur on Sept. 3 and the Link extension service launches on Sept. 16.
Pierce Transit provides free Wi-Fi on buses and has invested in other technology that helps riders understand system conditions, such as bus departures and how to locate their bus in real-time. Riders can get up-to-date information through:
- PierceTransit.org offers complete schedules (to view, download or print by route), maps, trip planning, service alerts and real-time bus arrival information.
- Monitors at major boarding hubs show real-time arrival information.
- Transit app can be used for trip planning and real-time information.
