Covid-19 Schedule Reductions

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pierce Transit has adapted to reduced revenue and demand by reducing service. In May 2020, the agency restored some service, and in September 2020 Pierce Transit has proposed a service level at 90 percent of pre-COVID levels. Still, a reduction of 10 percent from pre-COVID service requires some difficult choices.

We are seeking your feedback on what changes and restorations you would like the agency to prioritize as we plan the next service change in March 2021, when we hope to bring back additional service, depending on available funding. CLICK HERE to view survey and learn more.



2019 Annual Report

2019 Annual Report

As your local transit agency, Pierce Transit strives to provide our community with innovative solutions that meet your transportation needs. By keeping people moving, we have helped keep our economy moving, too.

In 2019, we partnered with about 330 employers to help them find efficient and cost-effective ways to get their employees to work. We partnered with schools to transport students to class and enrichment activities and created solutions that helped more people access transit. We tapped into new technologies, too, providing real-time bus arrival information and expanded mobile ticketing options. The employees at Pierce Transit take great pride in bringing you Pierce County’s option to the single-occupancy vehicle. We are always interested in your ideas to help further our goals in providing transportation solutions for today and the future.

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.
