Snohomish County, Wash. – Thanks to a federal grant and state matching money, Community Transit will add 30 daily bus trips between south Snohomish County and downtown Seattle (22 trips) and the University District (8 trips) beginning February 18.
Trips will be added at morning and evening peak hours to routes that are experiencing high ridership. Some trips on the agency’s Double Tall double decker buses have more than 100 riders on board.
The following routes will have additional morning trips:
Routes 410, 412, 413(3), 415(3), 416, 417, 810(2), 855 and 860.
The following routes will have additional afternoon/evening trips:
Routes 402, 410, 412, 413(3), 415(4), 416, 417, 810, 855(2) and 860.
Community Transit applied for and received funding for these additional trips from a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant to alleviate congestion on I-5 during peak hours. A 20 percent local match was required; Community Transit will use money from a state transit fund created by the 2012 Legislature as the match. Community Transit had not planned to add service due to budget constraints, but these funding sources allow the agency to operate these trips without impacting other service.
The agency is also adding three late-night trips along Highway 99. Swift buses will begin their last trips in both directions at 10 p.m., while a last northbound Route 101 trip is also being added.
Trip Times and Route Changes
On February 18, some bus trips will see schedule changes. Riders should check the new schedules online and in Bus Plus schedule books.
There will be a couple minor route changes as well.
Route 112 (Ash Way Park & Ride – Mountlake Terrace Transit Center)
Route 112 buses will be routed into the Lynnwood Transit Center from 44th Ave. West along 194th, 48th and 200th streets. This slight reroute will improve connections to local businesses, other buses and improve transfer times.
Route 417 (Mukilteo – Downtown Seattle)
Route 417 buses will no longer travel on 44th Avenue W, north of 196th Street in Lynnwood. Instead, buses will travel on Highway 525 from Mukilteo to I-5, then get off at 196th Street before serving the Lynnwood Transit Center. Northbound routing will be the reverse. This change will provide a peak-hour connection with Route 196.
Route 885 (Lynnwood – UW)
Route 885 will be eliminated. The three daily roundtrips will be replaced with extra trips on Route 880. The two routes currently serve much of the same corridor at different times, except that Route 880 does not serve the Lynnwood Transit Center. Riders wishing to travel between UW and the Lynnwood Transit Center can take Routes 810, 821 or 855.
