Snohomish County, Wash. - Daily bus service between Mountlake Terrace and Seattle will triple with the opening of Sound Transit’s Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station on March 20. The freeway station is located in the I-5 median adjacent to the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center.
The new freeway station will allow Community Transit to streamline some of its commuter service, saving the agency money, while adding Sound Transit service to Mountlake Terrace.
The Sound Transit changes will take effect Sunday, March 20. Route 511 will provide service through the freeway station every 15 minutes weekdays and every half-hour on weekends. Route 513 will provide peak hour, peak direction weekday service through the freeway station as well.
Starting Monday, March 21, Community Transit local bus service will deliver passengers to and from the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center from Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Shoreline. Riders will have quick, direct commuter service to and from Seattle through the freeway station.
As part of the streamlining, Community Transit will cancel two commuter routes that currently serve the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, Routes 408 and 477. In their place, Routes 413 and 415 will make stops at the freeway station to Seattle in the morning and back to Lynnwood in the afternoon. In addition, Route 414 will serve the freeway station between South Everett and Seattle after the normal commute peak times.
Community Transit’s service to and from the University District will continue to operate from the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, not the new freeway station.
Other Community Transit service changes also take place on March 21:
• New Route 111 will provide peak hour local service between Brier and the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center.
• Route 130 will serve 56th Avenue W. from 220th to 236th streets in Mountlake Terrace. It will no longer operate on 58th Avenue W. or 230th Street.
• Route 270 westbound from Gold Bar to Everett Station will only serve the Sultan Park & Ride directly on its first three morning trips. Other Route 270 and all Route 271 westbound trips will remain on Highway 2, with the next closest stop on Main Street. Eastbound Route 270 and 271 trips to Gold Bar will continue to stop at the Sultan Park & Ride. Route 277 will serve the park & ride in both directions.
• Southbound Routes 201 and 202 and Routes 270, 271 and 275 will have bay changes at Everett Station.
Details of the new service changes are online and available in Community Transit’s new Bus Plus schedule books onboard buses.
In 2009, Community Transit opened the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center, an 890-stall parking garage and surface lot to accommodate transit demand in South Snohomish County. Sound Transit constructed the Mountlake Terrace Freeway Station as a complement to the transit center, allowing buses to serve the center without getting off the freeway and traveling through city streets. The station will save bus riders time on their commute and transit agencies money in their operations.
