Major changes are coming to Community Transit on March 30, as we expand and update routes to accommodate the future of transit in Snohomish County. This includes the opening of the new Swift Orange Line, and some bus routes being replaced or changing paths.

Three stops along Alderwood Mall Blvd that will have limited service between March 30 and fall of this year, because Routes 115 and 116 are being eliminated and replaced with new routes. Below are suggestions for alternative stops and new routes that you can use to make sure you are able to get where you need to go! 

Stops that will be impacted starting March 30: 

  • Stop #370 – Alderwood Mall Blvd and 28th Ave W
  • Stop #371 – Alderwood Mall Blvd and 33rd Ave W
  • Stop #1742 – Alderwood Mall Blvd and 28th Ave W 

Suggested alternatives:

While these three stops will still be served by Route 107 (Lynnwood – Seaway Transit Center), there are other options you can take that are within walking distance of these stops, as shown in the map below. 

  • Swift Orange Line (Edmonds – McCollum Park) will be replacing Route 115. There will be a Swift Orange Line station located on 33rd Ave W, about 0.5 miles away from stop #1742.
  • Route 113 (Mukilteo – Lynnwood Transit Center) can help you get to the Swift station. There is a Route 113 stop on 33rd Ave W about 450 feet from stop #371.
  • Route 166 (Edmonds – Silver Firs) will be replacing Route 116. Route 166 will have stops on Alderwood Mall Pkwy, less than 0.5 miles from stop #370 and #371
Stops #370, #371, and #1742 will have limited service. There are nearby stops along Alderwood Mall Pkwy and 33rd Ave W,
