Each year, Community Transit updates its six-year Transit Development Plan (TDP). It forecasts the agency's financial picture six years out and outlines services the agency can provide.

The Draft 2019-2024 Transit Development Plan looks ahead six years to forecast sales tax revenue, and to match proposed future service expansions with the labor and fleet needed to provide that service.
Community Transit continues to focus on expanding service, including the build-out of Swift, its bus rapid transit network. Swift Orange Line, the third line in the network, will launch in 2024. With terminals in Mill Creek and Edmonds, Orange Line will connect Swift riders to Sound Transit’s Link light rail's Lynnwood City Center station.
This draft plan also includes a Swift Blue Line extension; the line will extend 1.8 miles south along Highway 99/Aurora Avenue to a new Sound Transit Link light rail station at N. 185th Street in Shoreline.
