Pierce Transit was founded in 1979 when local voters approved sales tax funding for public transportation. We have grown to become Washington's second largest transit agency, serving Pierce County's 775,000 residents in a 414 square mile area.
Our mission is to deliver outstanding services that match our customer's needs. Pierce Transit's goal is to be a resource for our community, providing:
- safe, affordable, reliable transportation for all our citizens
- reduced traffic congestion and air pollution
- economic growth by linking workers with jobs
- access to higher education by linking students with colleges
A nine-member Board of Commissioners oversees the Agency. The Board is made up of elected officials that represent our service area.
The Agency provides local and express bus service, specialized transportation services for our disabled customers, and vanpool and ridesharing programs.
