BRT Update (Route #1 Pierce Transit)

Dear Community Member,

Pierce Transit Bus Rapid Transit Project Update
Pierce Transit continues to move forward with the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, and we want to connect with you to share the latest technical update.

What is Pierce Transit BRT?
Pierce Transit BRT is a new transportation option we are planning that will provide quick, reliable, and accessible service along the 14.4-mile corridor on Pacific Avenue/State Route 7 between downtown Tacoma and Spanaway. BRT will include new, upgrade buses and stations, and the service will be faster and more reliable than the existing Route 1. We are excited about this project and know that community members along the route have a vested interest in making sure that BRT will work for everyone.

BRT Community Committee
To help guide the BRT project, in November we formed a BRT Community Committee that includes representatives of community organizations, local businesses, and regional transportation groups. Meetings will be held quarterly, and materials from these meetings will be posted on our project website at You can view the November 2019 meeting summary here.

Door-to-Door Outreach
In November and December, you may have seen members of our team conducting door-to-door outreach along Pacific Avenue to share information and have conversations directly with community members and business owners about Pierce Transit BRT. Altogether, we spoke directly to more than 350 businesses!
