We invited community members to “Try the Bus” with the new Pierce Transit CEO Sue Dreier, on Oct. 30. It was an opportunity for the public to get to know Sue and ask her questions about her plans for Pierce Transit.
Although the event had limited space, we wanted make sure you had the opportunity to get to know Sue too! Just visit our YouTube channel to hear what she has to say about her background as a bus driver, her plans for Pierce Transit, and the unique ways in which she intends to collaborate with local entities including Downtown On the Go, local businesses, Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, local jurisdictions, and the Puget Sound Regional Council. Sue also discussed cutting down on dwell time as a way to enhance ridership and move busses more quickly, as well as improving last-mile connections through new and innovative ways.
These are exciting times and we are eager to collaborate with Sue and Pierce Transit on improving user experiences of biking, busing, and walking.
Thanks for riding the bus with us, Sue!
