Transit to Trails is back!

Pierce Transit’s "Transit to Trails" summer event series is back, with the first 2019 event taking place Thursday, June 27. The event will start at the Tacoma Dome Station bus platform at 4:45 p.m., where riders will catch the Pierce Transit Route 400 bus to the Puyallup Sounder Station. Along the route, Fife Mayor Kim Roscoe will provide information about the existing Riverwalk Trail and explain the strides being made on a new, regional trail between Tacoma and Puyallup.

After the ride, event participants are invited to attend the Puyallup Watershed Initiative’s public forum on the Tacoma to Puyallup Trail, where they can learn more about the project, ask questions and offer input. There will be two options to return to Tacoma Dome Station as a group, at 6:15 and 8:15 p.m.

The schedule will be as follows:
  • 4:45 p.m. to 5:25 p.m. – Ride the Route 400 from the Tacoma Dome Station Bus Platform to the Puyallup Station
  • 5:20 to 5:30 p.m. – Walk 0.4 miles to Pioneer Park Pavilion, 330 S. Meridian, Puyallup
  • 5:30 to 6 p.m. – Open House at Pioneer Park Pavilion
  • 6 to 6:30 p.m. – Presentation
  • 6:30 to 8 p.m. – Discussions
Those who ride the bus from Tacoma Dome Station to the Puyallup Station will receive a tote that includes a loaded ORCA Card and information about how to make the most of transit this summer.

Transit to Trails events, which give people an opportunity to ride transit to a trail (or trail-related event) and learn more about how to ride public transportation, are led by Pierce Transit with assistance from Downtown: on the Go! Those with questions about the event should contact Hally Bert at hallyb@downtownonthego.org. Register for the event through Hally or via the Facebook event.

There will be additional Transit to Trails events throughout the summer.

Trip Planner Help

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.
