Community Transit is making major changes to bus service, as Sound Transit’s Link 1 Line service reaches Snohomish County on Aug. 30.

Here is what you can expect for bus service changes starting Sept. 14:

  • More bus service, running more often, including extending the Swift Blue Line to the Shoreline North/185th light rail station.
  • New schedules on most routes for more reliable service. All riders should check their schedules for changes.
  • Simplified bus fares starting Sept. 1 — $2.50 for adults, $1.25 discounted fares for those who qualify, and kids ride free.

While Community Transit offers bus service to Link light rail stations, light rail service is owned by Sound Transit. To learn more about Link light rail, visit

We understand your frustration in moving from one commuter route to Seattle to transferring to light rail from the bus. We understand that this creates another step in your journey. We did make this decision to improve the experience overall for riders in Snohomish County. Our goal is to connect riders to congestion-free light rail and avoid duplicating service offered by Link light rail.

We will begin implementing further changes to bus service in phases through 2026. Riders will see increased frequency and extensions of bus operating hours for many local routes in 2025 and 2026. We will provide more details about the specific routes we're adding and removing at each service change as these changes get closer. Learn more on our Transit Changes in 2024 and Beyond webpage.
