Under Construction

In 2018, Pierce Transit will be making repairs and renovations at several Park & Ride and Transit Center locations, including:

Tacoma Dome Station - Renovations include improved lighting, better signage, concrete repairs, fresh paint, and a general clean-up at this transit hub. While construction is underway, 200 parking spots at a time will be unavailable, on a rotating basis. For ideas about alternatives to parking at TDS, and project updates visit piercetransit.org/TDSgarage.

SR 512 Park & Ride - Initially, bus shelters will be repaired and light fixtures will be replaced, followed by surface work throughout the parking lot and transit center. During the repaving phase, the parking lot and transit center areas will be completely closed. Transit operations and parking will be relocated temporarily throughout the duration of the construction contract to a lot adjacent to Discount World along Pacific Highway. Bus routes will be detoured at that time.

Tacoma Mall Transit Center - Initially, bus shelters will be repaired and light fixtures will be replaced, followed by surface work throughout the transit center. During the repaving phase, the transit center will be completely closed. Transit operations will be relocated during the construction period.

Tacoma Community College Transit Center - Initially, bus shelters will be repaired and light fixtures will be replaced, followed by surface work throughout the transit center and Park & Ride lot. During the repaving phase, the transit center and Park & Ride lot will be completely closed. Transit operations will be relocated during the construction period.

72nd Street Transit Center - Bus shelters will be repaired, light fixtures will be replaced, and some concrete work will take place. The transit center will remain open during construction.

Lakewood Transit Center - Renovations include improved lighting, concrete repairs, fresh paint, and a general clean-up. While construction is underway, passenger zones will be temporarily relocated within the facility’s footprint.

At all locations, please be cautious and stay out of the construction zones. Depending on the location, route detours may be necessary. Watch for posted Rider Alert signs, and updates.

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.
