LAKEWOOD – Effective June 9, Pierce Transit bus service and SHUTTLE service for people with disabilities will have several changes made to current schedules. In an effort to maintain as much service as possible, some reduction needs to be made now before the major service cuts occur on September 29. Beginning June 9, a number of routes will begin later in the morning and end earlier in the evening. In addition, during weekday peak hours, some routes may have fewer trips. This service change impacts a number of routes on all days of service, so it is important for riders to check individual route schedules for exact times. These changes reflect an approximate 4% reduction from the current service level.
Detailed route-by-route information about the June 9 and the September 29 service changes is now available on the Pierce Transit website at www.piercetransit.org or by calling Customer Service at 253.581.8000. The Pierce Transit route and “The Bus Stops Here” schedule book and Rider Alerts are available on-board buses, at Bus Shops, and at the regular distribution sites.
“These reductions, which continue the system-wide downsizing of service, are a result of the recession and the two-time rejection of Proposition 1, which would have increased funding for Pierce Transit,” stated Pierce Transit CEO, Lynne Griffith. “We continue our commitment to finding everyday efficiencies and seeking new revenue sources in order to provide as much service for our customers as resources allow.”
