About the Zip Alderwood shuttle pilot:

At Community Transit, our vision is to make travel easier for all — and innovation is a key part of making that happen. Zip Alderwood came to be thanks to community members who wanted to make local travel easier and better.

In 2021 Community Transit partnered with the City of Lynnwood and dozens of other local organizations to develop a pilot transit project. The goal? To better meet local transportation needs.

The Zip Alderwood shuttle will be a one-year pilot, launching on October 20, 2022. Community Transit will continue to gather public feedback during this time to help develop this program into a travel option that truly meets the needs of the community.
