Tell us about transit


In the wake of Pierce Transit's cuts, many people are wondering what kind of service is needed, who needs to go where, how such service could be provided, and how to pay for it.


Mayor Enslow and other mayors in eastern Pierce County cities would like to know more from you about what kind of service you want (if any), would use, and where. 


Please take a few moments to fill out the online survey or pick up a hard copy at City Hall, the Puyallup/Sumner Chamber of Commerce, Pierce County Sumner Library and the Sumner Senior Center.


Also, please share with your employees as you find it appropriate.  We want to hear from as many potential riders as possible.
