I was concerned with the letter (TNT, 9-9) from the reader who felt Pierce Transit dropped the ball regarding Puyallup Fair rides. I then went to the agency’s website and found many routes throughout the day which can take disabled passengers to the fair on their regular routes.
While there are no direct fair rides, the reader can still get to and from the fair throughout the day. He can go online and schedule his trip by using the trip planner.
Given the cutbacks incurred due to the difficult economy and lack of sales tax increases, it appears reasonable to use the regular routes. He can then register for the shuttle so in a few weeks he can be picked up at his home and be taken wherever he wants to go, all at little to no cost to him.
