Pierce Transit Passes Vanpool Fees, Delays Policy Changes

The Pierce Transit Board of Commissioners passed two policy changes related vanpool services last night; a general fare increase and toll recovery from groups that travel across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The commission tabled a vote on a policy that would implement a change in the vanpool service area.

Starting May 1, vanpool monthly fares will increase from $2 to $55 per user. This range is based on the number of participants in a vanpool group and daily round-trip miles.

Pierce Transit will also start to recover the full Tacoma Narrows Bridge toll from vanpool groups that travel on the bridge.

The commissioners tabled a vote on changing the vanpool service area that would require either the vanpool group's origin or destination to be inside the Pierce Transit district boundary.
