Fare Policy Change

A new fare policy will take effect October 1 that charges commuter fares for all riders of 400 or 800 series routes, regardless of where you board or de-board. If you are riding these buses within Snohomish County, you must pay the commuter fare. This policy was adopted by the Community Transit Board of Directors last fall.
