Pierce Transit Service Changes

On Monday night, the Pierce Transit Board met and discussed options for service cuts.

On Monday night, the Pierce Transit Board met and discussed options for service cuts that are necessitated by the failure of Proposition 1 to pass last November. (You can read the full Tacoma News Tribune article here.) The board voted 6-2 to adopt the cuts and made a plan to put them into effect on September 29th.

While a 34% reduction in service will be a devastating blow to Pierce County, the cuts are not as severe as the 53% reduction estimated earlier last year. This is due in part to a small increase in sales tax revenue over the last few months.

After cuts are made, Pierce Transit will be at approximately 275,000 service hours, down from 417,000 services hours. This is a pre-1980 level of service.

Here is a list of the changes that will happen in September.

  • Weekend and holiday services will be eliminated.
  • Weekday service after 7 PM will be reduced.
  • Mid-day service will also be reduced.
