Notice of Public Hearing Major Service Change
A public hearing will be held as part of the Board of Commissioners Regular Meeting on Monday, October 10, 2022. The Board meeting begins at 4:00 p.m. and members of the public may attend the meeting in person or virtually through Zoom.
The purpose of this hearing is to advise the public and receive public comment on a non-demonstration, system wide Major Service Change. In November 2021 as defined by Pierce Transit Code (1.060.10(A)), the agency had to reduce service on several routes. Routes 1, 11, and 16 meet the definition of Major Service change per Pierce Transit’s Code. This Major Service Change that occurred in November 2021 will extend beyond 12 months, requiring public process. The service reductions were due to operator shortages, Pierce Transit hopes to recover service as staffing allows. No additional service reductions are proposed at this time
