Vision: Pierce Transit has adopted a Long Range Plan (LRP) for Horizon Year 2040 – to be titled Destination 2040 - as a comprehensive guiding documentation of the agency’s vision and blueprint for providing dependable, safe, efficient, and fully integrated public transport services throughout the South Sound region of today, tomorrow, and beyond.
So why create a Long Range Plan…?
- The LRP was developed to establish a vision for the agency. It will then provide guidance or direction as we begin developing implementation strategies for capital projects and service improvements over both the mid- and long-term.
- It answers, “Where do we want to go and how to we plan to get there?” by creating a 2040 blueprint for Pierce Transit.
- It cites and integrates the agency’s Strategic Plan for 2015-2020, as well as informs the six-year Transit Development Plan which is revised and updated annually.
- In order to meet obligatory requirements under the USDOT’s Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) multi-year transportation authorization of 2012 and FAST Act of 2015 that transit agencies’ Long Range Plans now be performance based.

Future Services Scenarios
Destination 2040 lays out a vision to expand transit service to meet the country's growth. Pierce County is growing. New residents need public services: schools, parks, water, sewer, and transportation. Investing in transit is an efficient use of our region’s limited transportation dollars—it takes fewer resources to move more people by transit.
