PIERCE TRANSIT NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
PROPOSED SERVICE CHANGES EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 11, 2016
Date: April 28, 2016
A public hearing will be held as part of the Board of Commissioners’ meeting on May 9, 2016. The meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. and is held in the Pierce Transit Training Center, Rainier Conference Room, 3720 96th Street S.W., Lakewood, Washington. The purpose of the hearing is to allow public comment on proposed changes to Pierce Transit bus service.
Pierce Transit is proposing to continue operating peak commute oriented Route 63 NE Tacoma Express service from NE Tacoma to Downtown Tacoma. The agency will also continue its partnership with King County Metro that provides for Route 903 feeder service to the local Route 63. These community-based routes provide links to both Downtown Tacoma and Federal Way. This recommendation will also go before the Board of Commissioners to take action at their June 13, 2016 meeting.
Information about this proposal is available through Pierce Transit’s website www.piercetransit.org/route-63-demonstration-project or by calling Pierce Transit at (253) 581-8000. If you are unable to attend the public hearing, forward comments by May 27, 2016. Please address your comments to:
