New Service - September 2016 

Service Expansion

Thanks to local support, Community Transit is expanding bus service!

Starting September 11, Community Transit will launch:

  • Two new routes
  • Two revised routes
  • New trips within Snohomish County and to downtown Seattle and UW.

New revenue from the passage of last fall's Proposition 1 ballot measure is being invested in a major expansion of transit service in Snohomish County. This first year of expansion will focus on new service that can be added with the current bus fleet and the addition of some new drivers.

This summer, Community Transit has approved the purchase of 57 new buses, including 17 Double Talls, that will be used for future service expansion in 2017 and 2018.

A second bus rapid transit route, the Swift Green Line, is set to open between Canyon Park/Bothell and Boeing/Paine Field in early 2019.

New Routes

Two new routes provide more east-west bus connections in the county, and new service along Highway 9 creates a north-south transit corridor on Snohomish County's eastside.

Route 109

A new Route 109 operates between the Ash Way Park & Ride in south Snohomish County and the Lake Stevens Transit Center. This route provides 30-minute service in the weekday AM and PM peak, and hourly service the rest of the day and on weekends.

Route 109 travels north on Ash Way from the Ash Way Park & Ride to the Mariner Park & Ride. It travels east on 128th/132ndpast the McCollum Park Park & Ride and along Cathcart Way to Highway 9. The route travels north on Highway 9 to serve Snohomish and the Lake Stevens Transit Center.

Route 209

A new Route 209 operates between the Lake Stevens Transit Center and Quil Ceda Village. This route provides 30-minute service in the weekday AM and PM peak, and hourly service the rest of the day and on weekends.

Route 209 travels north from the Lake Stevens Transit Center on Highway 9 and turns west on 64th Street in Marysville. The route continues west on 4th Street across I-5, then north on 27th Avenue to Quil Ceda Village, ending between the Tulalip Resort Casino and Seattle Premium Outlets.

Revised Routes

Route 222

Route 222 service in Marysville is revised to complement the new Route 209.

West of Quil Ceda Village, Route 222 is unchanged on the Tulalip Reservation.

From Quil Ceda Village, the route travels east on 88th Street and Ingraham Blvd., turning south on 83rd Avenue by Marysville Getchell High School. The route turns west on 64th Street, then north on 67th Avenue and west on Grove Street, passing the Marysville Library. Buses continue west to State Avenue.

Route 417

Route 417 no longer stops at the Lynnwood Transit Center, eliminating the lengthy deviation between Mukilteo and downtown Seattle.
