A public hearing will be held as part of the Board of Commissioners’ meeting on Monday, September 13, 2021.  The Board meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. and will be conducted virtually.

The Transit Development Plan (TDP) reports on Pierce Transit's annual operating budget, capital investments, and business strategies, and is submitted to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) annually. This year’s TDP highlights agency work accomplished in 2020; provides a general outline of services and facility changes anticipated from 2021-2026; and financial elements (both operating and capital), budgeted for 2021 plus projected unmet needs for 2021-2026. Once finalized, Pierce Transit will use the TDP to guide specific development of upcoming service designs, business strategies, and budget considerations.

The Transit Development Plan document is scheduled for formal adoption at the October 11, 2021, Board of Commissioners’ meeting. Pierce Transit will accept written comments on the proposed plan up to Friday, September 24, 2021. Written comments should be submitted to Duane Wakan, Senior Planner, 3701 96th Street SW, Lakewood, WA 98499, or by email at Dwakan@piercetransit.org.

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.
