Where to ride a Double Tall bus:

You can catch a double decker bus from Sound Transit or a Double Tall bus from Community Transit when riding in our region. 

About Double Tall buses:

Our fleet of Double Tall buses is the second largest in the US. They’re lower maintenance, more fuel efficient, and easier to maneuver in the snow and ice than articulated buses. Each can comfortably seat up to 100 riders and gives those seated up top a great view.

Plan your trip

Community Transit routes that operate using Double Tall buses: 402, 405, 410, 413, 415, 417, 421, 422, and 425.

Sound Transit Routes that operate using double-decker buses: 510, 512, 513, 532, and 535.
