Two new commissioners join Pierce Transit’s governing board

On Feb. 12, 2018, two local leaders will take their place on the Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners when the Board holds its monthly meeting at 4 p.m. at the agency’s headquarters in Lakewood.

Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards will represent Tacoma on the Pierce Transit board, replacing outgoing commissioner and former Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland. Woodards is a graduate of Lincoln High School and served as a soldier in the US Army while stationed at Fort Lewis. Before becoming Mayor in January 2018, Woodards served for seven years as a citywide member of the Tacoma City Council. She has also served as President and CEO of the Tacoma Urban League, Director of Community Development for the Tacoma Rainiers, President of the Tacoma Metropolitan Parks Board, and in other leadership positions.

Puyallup City Council member Robin Farris will also participate in her first Pierce Transit Board meeting this evening, replacing outgoing commissioner Heather Shadko. Farris, who has served on the Puyallup City Council since January 2016, will represent the Puyallup community on the transit agency board. Farris is a graduate of Puyallup High School and served 23 years in the United States Navy, working her way up from electronics technician to lieutenant commander before retiring in 2004. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Chapman University and two Masters degrees from Western Governors University.

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. at Pierce Transit’s Training Center in Lakewood, 3720 – 96th St. SW. 

Pierce Transit board members serve three year terms; Woodards and Farris are slated to serve through Dec. 31, 2020.

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.
