Detours

LINK Light Rail Construction

Sound Transit’s Tacoma LINK light rail expansion project has begun and its impacts are being felt on and near many Pierce Transit bus routes within the City of Tacoma on the following routes.

Details

  • Pierce Transit Routes Affected: 1-11-16-28-57-102
  • Work is happening on the following streets:
  • Commerce to Stadium Way from South 7th Street to North 1st Street
  • North 1st Street from Stadium Way to Division Avenue
  • Division Avenue from North 1st Street to North M Street
  • Martin Luther King Junior Way from Division Avenue to South 19th Street

While much of this work is coordinated with Pierce Transit in advance, there are times that the multiple Contractors working on this Sound Transit LINK project are working in a location that will result in short notice detour that will possible impact a Pierce Transit bus route and or having a bus stop(s) being closed on short notice.

We always strive to minimize the impacts to our Pierce Transit customers, this is a large project that will be underway until its estimated completion time in 2022.

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.
