Pierce Transit will have the first in a series of nine meetings Wednesday to explain details of a planned 28 percent cut in service starting in late September.
Pierce Transit plans to reduce its annual service hours from 417,000 to 300,000 as a result of the defeat of a proposed sales tax increase last year. Pierce Transit’s board will vote in June to implement the reductions.
