CTAG Applications

Pierce Transit is accepting applications to fill three current vacancies on its Community Transportation Advisory Group (CTAG). New CTAG appointees will serve a three-year term, beginning with their first CTAG meeting on January 28, 2016 and ending January 27, 2019.

The Pierce Transit CTAG consists of nine volunteer representatives who reflect the demographic diversity of the Pierce Transit service area. CTAG members serve an important role as informed stakeholders providing feedback on Pierce Transit's proposed plans, policies and services, and acting as communication links between Pierce Transit and their various networks. The Pierce Transit CTAG meets monthly on the fourth Thursday of each month at 5:30 pm at Pierce Transit’s Training Center in Lakewood. Meetings generally last about two hours.

Applicants must either reside, be actively employed, volunteer, or be a full-time student within the Pierce Transit service area.

Completed applications must be received in Pierce Transit’s offices by 5 pm, December 4, 2015. Pierce Transit will review all applications received by the deadline and schedule interviews for applicants deemed to be the best qualified. Interviews are planned for the week of December 7-11, 2015. All applicants will be notified of their status.

The Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners will approve and appoint the new CTAG members at its regular Board meeting on Monday, January 11, 2016 at 4 pm. The final three prospective appointees are expected to be available and present for the January 11, 2016 Board meeting, and to begin their volunteer service at the CTAG meeting scheduled for Thursday, January 28 2016 at 5:30 pm.

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.
