Wash. transit launches express bus service for local business

As a public agency, Pierce Transit will use taxpayer dollars to transport at least 37 employees on one bus; however, those workers will pay a higher percentage of the actual cost of their ride — about 60%. The typical bus fare covers 16% of costs. For the full story, click here.
