Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners welcomes two new members

Two local leaders took their place on the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners at the Board’s Nov. 9 meeting, with two other members transitioning off the Board.

Fife Mayor Kim Roscoe will represent the cities of Fife, Milton, Auburn, Pacific, Gig Harbor, Steilacoom and Ruston. Roscoe was appointed Fife Mayor in 2017 and served as a Fife City Councilmember from 2002 through 2009 and 2015 through today. She also serves on the Sound Transit Board of Commissioners and is a member of the Puget Sound Regional Council’s Transportation Policy Board. Roscoe is a small business owner and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Western Washington University.

Tacoma City Councilmember Kristina Walker will represent the City of Tacoma on the Board, in a new Tacoma seat following a recent reorganization of how communities within Pierce Transit’s service area would share the nine Board seats. Walker was elected to the Tacoma City Council in 2019, and since 2011 has served as Executive Director of Downtown On the Go, a nonprofit organization that promotes transit, walking and biking in downtown Tacoma. She is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University and the Tacoma/Pierce County American Leadership Forum. Walker also serves on the boards of University of Washington Tacoma Urban Studies and Transportation Choices Coalition, and is former member of the Tacoma Transportation Commission.

Departing the Pierce Transit Board are Steilacoom City Councilmember Nancy Henderson, who has represented a group of small cities for many years, and Robin Farris, who has represented the City of Puyallup. Under the recent Board reorganization, the cities of Puyallup and Edgewood will share a seat, which is currently unfilled.

The nine-member Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners sets policy for the agency and oversees the actions of Pierce Transit’s Chief Executive Officer. The Board of Commissioners meets the second Monday of each month at 4 p.m. 

Pierce Transit board members typically serve three-year terms; Roscoe and Walker are slated to serve through Dec. 31, 2023.

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.
