Dear Community Member,

Bus Rapid Transit Sample

Join us for a Bus Rapid Transit Open House next week!

Pierce Transit is studying the feasibility of Bus Rapid Transit along a 14.4-mile portion of Pacific Avenue/SR 7 between downtown Tacoma and Spanaway. Please join us at one of the upcoming open houses to learn about this project, meet with the study team and provide us with your feedback:

Tuesday, March 27, 4 to 7 p.m.
Spanaway Middle School Cafeteria/Commons
15701 B St. E., Tacoma

Wednesday, March 28, 4 to 7 p.m.
Garfield Book Company Community Room
208 Garfield St. S. #101, Tacoma 

Thursday, March 29, 4 to 7 p.m.
UW Tacoma William W. Phillip Hall
Jane Thompson Russell Student Commons, Room WPH 101A
1918 Pacific Ave., Tacoma

Bus Rapid Transit provides many benefits to the public, including more frequent service, faster travel times, tailored vehicles and upgraded, branded stations. At the open houses, you will learn more about the new system, as well as:

  • Where the bus might run along the roadway (curbside or median lanes);
  • Potential station locations and types;
  • Business and residential access; and
  • How the corridor might be re-shaped around Bus Rapid Transit.
