Regrettably, the Pierce Transit sales tax increase is not on the ballot with their sales tax increase until February 8, instead of in the high-turnout general election. Regardless, there is now a Yes-on-Prop-1 website, Facebook page, and donation site.

PT is hoping to avert a 43% service cut by increasing the sales tax rate from 0.6% to the state maximum of 0.9%, a level where Metro, Community Transit, and Sound Transit already are. That level would actually fund a service increase of about 5%, rather than merely avoiding the cuts.

You can get detailed by-route information about the proposal here.

  1. Thanks for covering! Cuts estimates have been revised down to 35%, but they are still unbearable!
