Big changes are coming to Community Transit as we prepare for light rail to reach Snohomish County later this year. Starting on March 30, you’ll have more travel options in Snohomish County, better transit connections across the region, and more bus service in your area.

Route 116 (Silver Firs – Edmonds) is being eliminated and will be replaced with new bus routes starting March 30. This means if you currently ride Route 116, you will need to take a new route to reach your destination.

Route 166 (Silver Firs - Edmonds)

Route 116 and Route 196 are being combined into the new Route 166. On Route 166, the bus will travel on the same path as Route 116 from Silver Firs through Mill Creek, until it reaches the Alderwood Mall. The bus will then stay on Alderwood Mall Pkwy and travel the same path as Route 196, with a stop at Lynnwood Transit Center on its way to downtown Edmonds.

Route 114 (Aurora Village - Lynnwood)

For travel along 200th St SW, 68th Ave. W near Edmonds College, 208th St. SW, 72nd Ave. W, and 212th St SW, riders will use the new Route 114.

Faster and more frequent service

Your bus will come more often! Routes 102, 114, and 166 will operate all day with buses running every 30 minutes during peak travel hours on weekdays.
