Pierce Transit provides public bus service to the Pierce County area in Washington State. With 400-500 bus drivers, the operators’ lounge is heavily used as the hub where drivers check-in for daily schedules, pick-up mail, take breaks between runs, meet with management, and socialize. It is a 24/7 operating facility.
The lounge was long overdue for a renovation and management desired to improve functionality, flow, and features.
The 5,600 sf space was entirely transformed with new flooring, counters, cabinets, furnishings, lighting, upgraded security, television monitors, dispatch area, lounge, kitchen/self-serve vending (switched from a catered type style), Assistant Manager offices, quiet room, computer lab, exercise room, and renovated restrooms. New mailboxes were installed in anticipation of growth to 500+ operators.
