It was adopted by the Board of Directors on September 6, 2018.
The 2017-2022 Transit Development Plan looks ahead six years to forecast sales tax revenue, and to match proposed future service expansions with the labor and fleet needed to provide that service.
By 2022, Community Transit will increase its fleet to 310 buses, 462 vanpools
The plan describes a program of innovative Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) projects designed to improve the experience of our customers. These technologies will improve and simplify fare payment, delivery of real-time transit information and service alerts.
Community Transit also continues to be a leader in the development of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs. Funded through partnerships with Snohomish County and local jurisdictions, these programs are finding new ways to connect customers with public transportation.
Recently, the Community Transit Board of Directors approved a plan to increase bus service by 6 percent with changes in September 2017 and March 2018, including two routes that will serve the Boeing-Paine Field area from south Snohomish County.
The plan will also improve transit connections throughout the county, add more weekday trips to Seattle and UW, and improve Sunday bus service with more frequent buses and later hours on some routes.In 2019, a major service expansion will include the launch of the Swift Green Line between Canyon Park and Boeing/Paine Field. The service proposals beyond 2019 are concepts and will need to be vetted by the Board of Directors each year.
