The Public Transportation Improvement Conference as outlined by RCW 36.57A.020 was convened by resolution of the Pierce Transit Board of Commission on Nov. 14, 2011. The Conference membership is comprised of one elected official from each jurisdiction within Pierce County and the Pierce County Council. The purpose of this conference is to consider changing the current boundaries of the Pierce Transit Public Transportation Benefit Area.

The headline of this story was corrected. The Public Transit Improvement Conference is independent from Pierce Transit, though Pierce Transit staffers are working on the project.
