Pierce Transit announcement.
Rides on Pierce Transit buses and SHUTTLE paratransit vehicles, as well as two of the agency’s on-demand Runner services will be fare-free Dec. 31, 2021. Pierce Transit is joining several other transit agencies around the region in offering fare-free service on New Year’s Eve, providing a safe and accessible transportation option to people who are traveling around the region that day and into the evening.
