October is Transit Month
Downtown On the Go is celebrating Transit Month which was started in 2011 as a way to celebrate and promote transit riding just like bike month. With weather changing in October, and bike riding becoming more difficult, it makes it the perfect time to give transit a try and get ready for the winter-weather months. Downtown On the Go offers assistance in navigating schedules and riding the bus, incentives to try it, and rewards for current riders.
To help celebrate Transit Month, each week Pierce Transit will highlight a benefit of transit in our community!
Transit Benefit – Week 1
Mobility – Regular transit and paratransit services for people with disability provide mobility for many Pierce County residents who have no other transportation options. Pierce Transit provides nearly half million annual trips for people with disability – providing mobility to them to go to their appointments and grocery shopping.
