Grants available for great ideas that will increase transit ridership in Pierce County

Pierce Transit is offering small grants to groups and organizations – typically up to $1,000 – to come up with and complete a project that will increase bus ridership in Pierce County. Projects might address things such as making it easier to walk or bicycle to the bus, helping people connect better to transit services, a unique marketing or education campaign, or any other project that would lead directly to increasing rides on the bus system and/or improve access to bus service.

Preferred projects will be those with significant involvement by community members who are affected by barriers to bus service, projects that enhance peoples’ mobility, those that improve the safety and accessibility of transit, or those that increase trips and result in in improved health, costs savings, reduced gasoline consumption, a reduced carbon footprint or and/or enhanced personal opportunities.

Pierce Transit will consider proposals from groups, agencies and organizations, and is looking for specific projects, so there must be a deliverable. Projects not eligible include the direct subsidy of bus passes; direct subsidy of community organizations’ existing services; projects identified with political parties; projects sponsored by for-profit organizations; general contributions to capital campaigns; or construction projects or real estate acquisitions.

The deadline to apply for a grant is 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4. All grant awards will be made by the end of 2019. 

There is a total of $10,000 available for this program. Representatives from Pierce Transit and the agency’s community advisory group will evaluate the applications and award the grants.

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.
