CEO Stop with Sue Dreier

CEO Stop with Sue Dreier

I'm Sue Dreier. I'm CEO of Pierce Transit, where I oversee approximately 916 employees with a $153 million budget. Pierce Transit provides community members with more than 10 million trips a year using 140 buses, 346 Vanpool vans and 100 paratransit vehicles. The Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners selected me for the job in early 2015 and I began my tenure in May of that year.

I came to Pierce Transit from Salem-Keizer Transit in Salem, Oregon where I served as Chief Operating Officer and managed the agency’s day-to-day operations, including fixed-route service, maintenance, security, customer service, and contracted services. I also served on the agency’s Executive Team, creating district-wide policies, goals and values, the agency’s budget, and capital and strategic plans.

Prior to working at Salem-Keizer, I served at Lane Transit District in Eugene, Oregon, where I began my transit career as a transit operator. I held a number of positions at Lane, ending my tenure there as Transit Services Manager. While at Lane I took a leadership role in crafting and implementing an operational plan for the agency’s first bus rapid transit project.

I believe that transit is about connecting people with their communities and is excited about leading Pierce Transit into a new era of transportation leadership and community service.

Trip Planner Help

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
