Community Transit proposes to reduce service on some weekday bus trips to better align service with current staffing levels. The proposal would reduce trips on 9 local routes and one downtown Seattle route starting in March 2023. A nationwide bus driver shortage is resulting in canceled trips, and we need to make these changes to improve reliability for riders.
The changes listed below:
We are actively recruiting new drivers to meet current and future demand. Community Transit is committed to expanding our service in time for light rail’s arrival in Snohomish County, and beyond. Learn more at communitytransit.org/drive4us.
A final bus schedule will be published before we implement changes in March. Here is the presentation that will be made to our board of directors on Dec. 1, explaining the need for these proposed changes.

Community Transit evaluates the effects of service change proposals on minority, low-income, and limited-English-speaking populations.
Our staff conducted the standard analysis in compliance with federal regulations. The analysis found that the proposed service change does not have a disparate effect on minority, low-income, or limited-English speaking populations.
