Pierce Transit doing HCT Feasibility Study

Pacific Ave/SR 7 to Spanaway being considered

A new feasibility study for High Capacity Transit along Pacific Avenue and State Route 7 from downtown Tacoma to Spanaway is being conducted by Pierce Transit. 

The corridor is currently served by bus number 1 and has the highest ridership among Pierce Transit's routes, accounting for 18% of its total ridership systemwide. 

Right now 55,000 people live within a half-mile of the 14.4 mile corridor and that is expected to grow by 25% by 2040. About 11% of the people currently living in the corridor are transit dependent. 

The corridor is also home to 31,000 jobs, a number that is expected to grow to 59,000 by 2040.

Pierce Transit expects to finalize its plan for the corridor in April 2018.
