Pierce Transit will move to modified Sunday service level starting April 6

Starting Monday, April 6, Pierce Transit will move to a modified Sunday service level until further notice. 

This week Pierce Transit’s weekday bus ridership is down 64 percent compared to March 2019. The reduced service levels take into consideration lower ridership and staffing levels, while also allowing room for social distancing between customers on buses.

The reduced schedule will run as follows:

Sundays – Regular Sunday schedule

Saturdays – Sunday schedule

Weekdays – Modified Sunday schedule. Routes on regular Sunday service except: 
  • Routes 1, 3, 500:  Extended morning and evening trips, and additional trips during peak travel times
  • Route 400:  Does not typically run Sundays; limited trips will run during this new service
  • Routes 13, 63, 102, 425, 497 and the JBLM Connector:  Temporary discontinuation of these routes that currently have very low ridership
During the new schedule, riders can find out when their next bus is coming by:
  • Checking their routes on PierceTransit.org/Change. Updated schedules will be posted on each route page Sunday, April 5.  
  • Texting 253.533.7084 from their bus stop and entering the bus stop number found on the pole. 
  • Using a bus locator app, such as Transit or One Bus Away.
  • Calling the agency’s Customer Service Office at 253.581.8000, option 1, 1.
Riders can also sign up for route text alerts by visiting PierceTransit.org/StayConnected.

Pierce Transit has instituted a number of steps aimed at increasing social distancing on buses between employees and the public, and amongst customers. Fare collection has been suspended on buses and SHUTTLE vehicles until further notice, and customers are being asked to board buses using rear doors only, unless they need mobility assistance. The agency has also closed its administrative lobby and customer service lobby to the public. Vehicles are being cleaned and disinfected daily, and buses are disinfected extra times throughout the day when they stop at transit centers.

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.
