September 2017 / March 2018 Service Expansion Proposal

Snohomish County is growing, and Community Transit is keeping pace with a fourth consecutive year of service expansion. A new service expansion proposal to take effect in September 2017 and March 2018 would:

  • Improve transit connections in South Snohomish County.
  • Create new connections in North Snohomish County.
  • Add new service to the Paine Field manufacturing area.
  • Increase frequency of bus service on select routes.
  • Add more trips to Seattle and UW during the work week.
  • Improve Sunday bus service with more frequent buses and later hours on some routes.

In addition to making it easier for county residents to get around on transit, this proposal looks toward the future by establishing local bus service all along on the future Swift Green Line corridor.
