Fare Revision Proposal
FARE REVISION PROPOSAL
Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held by Pierce Transit as part of the Board of Commissioners’ meeting on February 9, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at Pierce Transit’s Training Center, Rainier Room, located at 3720 96th Street SW, Lakewood, Washington. The purpose of the hearing will be to accept oral and written testimony relevant to the fare revision proposal.
On July 14, 2014 the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners authorized amending Pierce Transit Code Section 3.72, Fare Schedule. The fare changes eliminated paper transfers and added an All-Day Pass to the Pierce Transit fare structure. The Gig Harbor Trolley Fares are at a reduced rate as a result of community partnership funds pledged by the City of Gig Harbor to support the Gig Harbor Trolley service. The proposed change to the Trolley Fare adds an All-Day Pass for Pierce Transit Trolley Fare:
|Current Trolley Fare||Proposed Trolley Fare|
|Gig Harbor Trolley Cash Fare||$.50||$.50|
|Gig Harbor Trolley Monthly Pass||$18.00||$18.00|
|Gig Harbor Trolley Senior & Disabled Cash Fare with Regional Reduced Fare Permit||Free||Free|
|Gig Harbor Trolley Youth Fare Cash Fare||$.50||$.50|
|Gig Harbor Trolley Youth Monthly Pass||$18.00||$18.00|
|Gig Harbor Adult and Youth All-Day Pass||NA||$1.00|
