Journey 2050

Community Transit's Long Range Plan

Project Background

The Journey 2050 Long Range Plan update will guide Community Transit's vision and long-term priorities for 2025-2050.

  • We will consider service frequency, routes, and transit modes.
  • We will evaluate community input, current conditions and forecasts, rider needs, and transit access.
  • We will identify emerging transportation trends and technology and create a framework to leverage future opportunities in transportation.

The final plan will guide Community Transit's investments in services and infrastructure for decades to come.

How should Community Transit grow its transit services over the next 30 years?

We know that to meet population growth in Snohomish County and to provide high-quality public transportation, transit service must grow between now and 2050. We want to know which options for expanding transit are most important to you.

We have placed our service into three categories:

  • Swift Bus Rapid Transit
  • Innovative Services
  • Regular Bus Service

Community Transit will invest in and grow all three service types to improve convenience, reliability, and efficiency.
