A Community Transit bus is parked outside the Link Northgate Station.

Transit Changes in 2024 and Beyond is our plan for bus service changes to prepare for light rail coming to Snohomish County in the next few years. Your input helped us define our plan for transit changes in 2024 and beyond. Learn about these transit changes in a recorded webinar.

The Community Transit Board of Directors approved this plan for bus service on April 6, 2023. Learn more about this plan for bus service and when we will implement changes below. 

King County Metro conducted separate outreach for its Lynnwood Link connections in February and March. Learn more on the King County website.

Our goals for these transit changes are to:
  • Connect bus service to light rail— creating easy connections between light rail, Swift bus rapid transit service, and frequent local bus service.
  • Expand access to frequent service— allowing for fast trips between key points throughout Snohomish County with improved transit access to more jobs and essential services, shorter walking distances, and less waiting between bus connections.
  • Adjust to the changing market— considering how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected how people ride transit.
  • Focus on equitable access— improving service for those who depend on transit the most.

When will transit changes occur

When these changes will occur is impacted by:

Our transit changes are designed to align with the Lynnwood Link (1 Line) light rail launch. We will be flexible with timing to provide the best service to our riders.

We will implement these transit changes in phases starting in 2024 and continuing through 2026. With every service change between 2024 and 2026, there will be progress on these changes. This phased implementation will also allow us time to recruit drivers. Some changes may be implemented with a lower frequency and we will add additional frequency as we hire more drivers.

Final Transit Service Plan

A 35-Route bus network

This final transit service plan is our final plan for transit changes in 2024 and beyond. The plan contains 35 routes with approximately 480,000 annual service hours—that’s 32% more service than today! It also represents the level of service frequency we expect to operate in 2026 once the light rail operates at full capacity. This final transit service plan:

  • Reflects your input from 2021–2023
  • Connects to new light rail service in Snohomish County with our new express 900-series routes
  • Improves and expands access to fast and frequent Swift bus rapid transit lines, including the new Swift Orange Line
  • Adds more frequent bus service throughout Snohomish County, with three times the number of routes with 20 minutes or better frequency and two times the number of routes with 30 minutes or better frequency
  • More late-night and weekend bus service
  • Increases the number of people and jobs within walking distance of all-day, frequent transit service by 68% and 40%, respectively
  • Replaces Northgate and downtown Seattle bus service with new express routes to Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace light rail stations
  • Adapts to shifts in ridership for frequent local service

Which routes are changing when

We will implement these transit changes in phases starting in 2024 and continuing through 2026. Our transit changes are designed to align with the Lynnwood Link (1 Line) light rail launch and ongoing recruitment for bus drivers.

We will make changes at our regular service changes in March and August/September. We may also make changes in June and December. You can learn more about our service changes on our Service Changes webpage.

Outlined below is the proposed timing to implement these transit changes. Sign up for rider alerts to get updates about changes.

March 30, 2024

On March 30, 2024, we will open the Swift Orange Line and implement changes to nearby routes. Routes 115, 116, and 196 will be replaced by Routes 102, 114, 166, and the Swift Orange Line. We will also modify some stops on Routes 120 and 202. Visit the service change webpage to learn more.

With service every 30 minutes on weekdays during peak travel times, Route 102 gives you new travel options in South Lynnwood. It connects to the Swift Blue and Swift Orange lines.

We will begin service on this route in March 2024 with 30-minute frequency, rather than the proposed 20-minute frequency. We will increase the frequency at a later date.

Aug. 31, 2024

Sound Transit expects to open the Lynnwood Link extension light rail in September 2024. We will implement changes to many of our local routes that operate through Lynnwood Transit Center (Routes 106, 120, 130, and 202) and open our Swift Blue Line extension to the Shoreline South/185th station. We will also discontinue our bus service to Northgate and Downtown Seattle (Routes 402, 405, 410, 412, 413, 415, 416, 417, 421, 422, 425, 435, 810, 821, 860, 871, 880) and implement our new express 900-series routes that connect at Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace light rail stations. Finally, we will remove some existing routes (Routes 105, 107, 113, 227, and 247); service will be provided to these areas via the new routes below. 

The frequency and operating times for the buses listed under each route are what we will eventually implement. We may begin service in August 2024 with less frequency and fewer operating hours, and make adjustments in 2025 and 2026.

How we got here

Your input helped shape the final transit service plan

Thank you for the input you shared! Your input helped shape the final transit service plan.

Phase 1: Transit Values and Priorities

In fall 2021, Community Transit asked you what your values and priorities are for future transit service when light rail comes to Snohomish County in the next few years. We received nearly 1,000 survey responses, and we heard about barriers to transit use and a preference for:

  • More local bus service rather than regional service to transit centers
  • More mid-day and evening weekday service, and weekend service
Phase 2: Draft Transit Service Plan

We used your feedback, demographic data, and our equity index to develop a draft plan for bus service. The equity index is part of carrying out the agency’s core value of Equity and Inclusion; a new equity index will be used to guide the development of the future bus network. It considers populations with very low incomes, communities of color, foreign-born residents, limited English-speaking households, and people living with a disability. In spring 2022, we asked for feedback on this draft plan on a route-by-route basis.

We received more than 750 survey responses, and we heard:

  • Increase frequency
  • Concerns that routes/light rail is too far from your final destination
  • Later evening service and more weekend service
  • Keep commuter bus service to Seattle
Phase 3: Final Draft Transit Service Plan

Following Phase 2 outreach, we updated the transit service plan based on input from:

  • The public during both phases of outreach,
  • Conversations with partner agencies,
  • Ridership data, and
  • Efficient bus operations.

We received more than 100 comments, and we heard:

  • A desire from current commuter bus riders to maintain their one-seat ride to downtown Seattle and concerns about using light rail due to safety concerns.
  • A concern with how schedules will align to make similar trips as riders take today.
  • Support for the more frequent bus service, as well as more bus service earlier in the day and later at night.

The Community Transit Board of Directors reviewed and considered all public comments and voted to approve the plan on April 6. Learn more about the transit changes and when they will go into effect above.
