The Transit Development Plan (TDP) reports on Pierce Transit’s annual operating budget, capital investments, and business strategies, and is submitted to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) annually. This year’s TDP highlights agency work accomplished in 2019; provides a general outline of services and facility changes anticipated from 2020-2025; and financial elements (both operating and capital), budgeted for 2020 plus projected unmet needs for 2021-2026. Once finalized, Pierce Transit will use the TDP to guide specific development of upcoming service designs, business strategies, and budget considerations. The document is scheduled for formal adoption at the September 14, 2020 Board of Commissioners’ meeting.
