Community Transit is growing and changing to accommodate for the future of transit in Snohomish County. On March 30, big changes are coming to our bus service, including the launch of the Swift Orange Line. Even more changes are coming later this summer, when Link light rail reaches Snohomish County.

Some routes will be replaced with new routes, and some bus routes will have changes to their route. Three new bus routes are being added. Even if your bus route remains the same, the arrival times at your stop may change. Being aware of these adjustments is important for a smooth commute.

How to stay informed

Visit the service changes webpage
The Community Transit Service Changes webpage is your go-to place for route change information and links to maps and schedules. This page will be updated on Feb. 5 with information about the March 30 service change, including maps of the new routes.

Sign up for digital Rider Alerts
Get digital messages via text or email, known as Rider Alerts, to stay informed about construction, holidays, severe weather conditions, and upcoming service changes. Sign up on the website by the route or routes you ride for timely notifications. About a month before each service change, alerts are sent to each route group with details about how that route is changing.

Read print Rider Alerts
Keep an eye out for printed Rider Alerts posted at bus stops, on buses, and at transit stations. These alerts contain essential information about holiday services, route changes, and more. At stops where routes are changing on March 30, alerts will have specific information about the changes. Scanning the QR code on the alert with your phone is a great way to learn more.

Read upcoming articles
Stay tuned in coming weeks for a series of articles on our website that will give more detailed information about the routes that are new, changing, and being replaced.
