June is Ride Transit Month

It’s Ride Transit Month!
This June is a month-long celebration of transit. Whether you ride a bus, train, or vanpool, or you are headed to work, school, the grocery store, or anywhere in between, transit can get us there together.

This is also a great way to keep the fun of Bike Month going by combining your bike ride with a bus trip. Did you ride your bike during Bike Month, May 1-31? Don’t forget to log your trips at PierceTrips.com by June 5.

This Month:
  • Highlight employer subsidies
  • A great time to start a vanpool with Pierce Transit’s Vanpool Incentives
  • Try riding for the first time, or share your transit savvy with others
  • Let someone else do the driving
  • Save the cost of driving and maintaining a personal vehicle
  • Take time to read, knit, listen to a podcast, or just relax
Region-wide:
Ride Transit Month has a goal of 10,000 participants, 700,000 + miles on buses, trains, and ferries, and avoiding the emissions of 1,000,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2). Put on by Transportation Choices Coalition, Ride Transit Month in Pierce County is supported by a partnership with Downtown On the Go and Pierce Trips.

Ride to Win a Dream Trip!
Riding transit this month could win you an Expedia gift card ($1500 value) or other great prizes! Log 10 one-way trips by bus, train or vanpool (that’s just 5 round-trip commute days) in the trip calendar at PierceTrips.com by the end of the month and you might find yourself booking the trip of your dreams. Transit trips logged for non-work purposes are also eligible, so there’s never been a better time to ride!

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.
