Pierce Transit is seeking volunteers to participate in a new Adopt-a-Stop program to keep the county’s 3,000 bus stops clean.

People of all ages are welcome to join the program. Volunteers will be expected to pick up trash at least once a week, report vandalism or hazardous materials and complete an activity log/report once a month.  Pierce Transit Staff will help coordinate the efforts.  After a bus stop is adopted, the volunteer’s name will appear on a sign posted at that stop.

For more information, or to get started, call 253-983-3455 or e-mail adoptastop@piercetransit.org.

    Prediction: Transity union workers threaten unfair labor complaint for taking work away from $45 per hour employees by allowing citizens the opportunity to clean neighborhood bus-stops.

    Or…….Pierce Transit gets sued because volunteers cut themselves on broken glass.

    I’ve seen workers in uniforms picking up\empty the trash cans. They are probably reducing the hours or laying off of the workers already paid to do this.
