More trips.

  • More transit in your neighborhood: Our new network replaces Northgate and downtown Seattle bus service with new express routes to Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace light rail stations. By taking our buses out of Seattle traffic, we can provide more service in Snohomish County. 
  • More service to where you want to be: We're bringing more all-day, frequent transit service closer to where people in Snohomish County region live and work. Our new network provides 32% more service than our 2023 network.
