Pierce Transit Shuttle
Contact: Lynne Griffith
"SHUTTLE is a shared-ride service for people who, because of their disability, are unable to ride a regular Pierce Transit bus.
SHUTTLE provides door-to-door service, or, in some instances, transportation to Transit Centers to connect with regular bus service. SHUTTLE operates oversized vans, all of which are wheelchair accessible. Current SHUTTLE fare is 75¢.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO RIDE SHUTTLE? To qualify for SHUTTLE service you must meet one of the following conditions, as set by the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act: You are functionally unable to get on or off a transit bus, even with use of a wheelchair lift.
You are physically unable to get to or from a regular Pierce Transit bus stop.
You are unable to understand and follow transit directions or understand information signs for reasons other than language.
SHUTTLE CERTIFICATION PROCESS. To become eligible for SHUTTLE, you must complete a certification process. This involves filling out an application explaining the limitations caused by your disability. The certification process may take up to 21 days after we receive your completed application. In some cases, Pierce Transit will require verification by a medical professional or other person familiar with your condition. Occasionally, when a decision about someone's functional ability is complicated, applicants will be referred for reassessment by a third party. After being certified, you may call from one to five days in advance of the day you wish to travel to request a trip.Number of Paratransit Vehicles: 36. Service Area: 450 sq. miles in Pierce County.
