Pierce Transit is in process of conducting a high-capacity transit study for a 14-mile corridor along Pacific Avenue from downtown Tacoma out State Route 7 to Spanaway.

This is a step toward identifying enhancements to increase transit ridership and support growth of transit-oriented communities along the corridor.

PT data assembled with assistance from Puget Sound Regional Council shows that 55,000 resident live within one-half mile of this corridor, and that number will be growing by 25 percent over the coming dozen years up to 2040.
