Snohomish County, Wash. – Community Transit will further reduce bus trips on Monday, April 13 to align with current ridership levels during the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency’s new reduced service schedule will represent a total reduction of approximately 30% over regular bus service levels.
NOTE: Starting Tuesday, April 21, trips have been restored to Routes 107, 109, 130, 196, 202, 227, 247, 435, 855 and 880 to align with Boeing employees who have returned to work. Please refer to www.communitytransit.org/reducedservice for the most current service information.
“Transit remains essential for many in our community who are working critical front line jobs,” said Community Transit CEO Emmett Heath. “During this crisis, a number of bus trips are seeing little or no ridership at certain times of the day, so we are temporarily canceling some of those trips to operate more efficiently and focus on routes that riders are using for essential travel.”
Last week Community Transit’s total boardings were down 71% when compared to February 2020.
Key features of the plan include:
Further details of the service reduction will be released later this week as agency planning staff complete their work. A complete listing of all trips that are not running will be updated at www.communitytransit.org/reducedservice by Friday, April 10.
