Why you should care
On the ballot this November is a proposed sales tax increase which equates to 3 pennies for every $10 spent. This small investment will go a long way by restoring essential transit service for seniors, people with disabilities, students, and commuters in Pierce County.
Without this small sales tax increase, Pierce Transit will be forced to cut service by an additional 38%, resulting in no weekend bus service, no shuttle paratransit service, limited weekday service for commuters, 30 to 60 minute wait times, and even more overloaded buses.
So come help support the Restore Transit Now campaign. Please consider a donation of $25, $100, or $200, and show-up to the kickoff event on June 28th with five of your friends.
