Buses to Replace LINK During Filming

A film crew will shut down Commerce Street between S. 15th and S. 17th Streets on Friday, November 21, 2008. The time frame the production coordinator has given is 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. However, Pierce Transit suspects the closure may occur as early as 1:00 p.m.

Tacoma Link will not be able to operate while during the shoot, so Pierce Transit will provide the Link Service (using Sound Transit buses) during this event. The PT operated Link service will serve all of the regular station stops except for the stop at Pacific Avenue at S. 19th (UW). For this stop, passengers may catch the Link Bus at temporary stops located at the regular fixed route bus stops both directions on Pacific Avenue. There will be large banners for the temporary Link stops at each location. In addition, there will be a temporary stop located westbound on S. 25th Street just before the Link Bus will turn right on to Pacific Avenue as it heads in to downtown Tacoma.

The PT operated Link service will resemble the regular Link service schedule. And, just like Link, the “bus service” will be free.

We don't know what is being you?
