Community Transit proposes more trips, new routing

Input sought on service proposals

 

March 18, 2020



Community Transit proposes to add more trips to existing bus service, and add new routing that expands coverage into neighborhoods not currently served, including Mukilteo.

These changes would take effect this fall and in spring 2021. Public comment is invited through April 3.

With these changes, the agency aims to increase weekday and weekend trips, the frequency of service, expand coverage, and create new service that improves local bus connections in south Snohomish County.

Over the next several years, Community Transit will expand and restructure service to prepare for connection to the regional Link light rail system that will open in Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace in 2024.

Proposed Changes

All changes are proposed for September 2020, except changes to Route 111, which may take place in March 2021.

Route 107 – Lynnwood Transit Center-Seaway Transit Center

• This proposal would increase trip options for Mukilteo residents, provide more connections from Mukilteo to #Swift# Green Line, and expand service hours and coverage for local workers.

• Proposal would double the number of trips to 16 per day; adding four morning trips northbound and four evening trips southbound.

• Proposal would reroute buses off Mukilteo Speedway to serve the Harbour Pointe loop.
