BUSES: Pierce Transit saves families money

I live in Spanaway, a mile and a half from the closest bus stop. However I do have a daughter who often rides the bus with lifts from me to and from that stop.

Surely I’m not the only parent grateful that Pierce Transit service is available. I must save hundreds of dollars per year on gas that I would be using for the sole purpose of shuffling daughter to and from malls, movies, friends’ houses, etc.

Multiply this situation by many other families and the number of cars kept off the road and gallons of gas saved must be incredible. The amount of tax increase being asked is a bargain for families taking advantage of this important service.
