- Getting Around
Pierce Transit's Innovative SolutionsPierce Transit is guided by our Board of Commissioners' strategic direction to focus on seven goals:
- Service Excellence
- Economic Development
- Financial Stability
- Community Engagement
- Engaged Workforce
- Innovative Solutions
In order to support and represent our vibrant community, Pierce Transit will partner with a wide variety of organizations, both private and public. Because our customers have diverse needs, we must innovate and work with communities to develop tailored transportation solutions. We will form interagency partnerships in order to creatively address transportation issues within Pierce County for areas that are currently underserved or have no service.
RIDE PIERCE TRANSIT’S FAIR EXPRESS TO THE BLUE GATE PARKING LOT!
AUGUST 30 - SEPTEMBER 22, 2019 (CLOSED TUESDAYS AND SEPT 4).
Plus, local bus service to the Fair! Pierce Transit also has local routes that go to the Washington State Fair. Many routes have service to the South Hill Mall, Tacoma Mall or the Lakewood Towne Center with connections to the Fair Express.
CHARGING AHEAD WITH ALL-ELECTRIC BUSES
Pierce Transit has long been a leader in providing clean, environmentally-friendly public transportation. In the 1980s we were among the first transit agency in the nation to move most of our fleet to running on clean, compressed natural gas (CNG). Today 76 percent of Pierce Transit’s bus fleet runs on CNG, 13 percent are diesel-electric hybrids, 8 percent are diesels and 3 percent run on gas.
This is a pilot project to provide first and last mile connections to and from transit centers and bus stops.
It will also help relieve parking congestion by providing rides to and from Sound Transit's Puyallup Sounder Station and provide rides home at night for Pierce College Puyallup students.
Lyft rides will be provided at no cost to the rider in specific areas (or “zones”) within Pierce Transit’s service area, on certain days and at specific times of the day. See map and chart for details.
