Meet Lindsay

Lindsay says she’s grateful for the options Community transit provides because it helps her get from her home in Edmonds to classes at the University of Washington campus in Seattle. She usually catches the 871 or 810 from Mountlake Terrace Transit Center to Northgate Station, and then hops on the Link light rail to campus.
