- 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.
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.
