Community Transit is the main public transit authority of Snohomish County, Washington (with the exception of the City of Everett, which operates its own transit service, Everett Transit). Community Transit operates buses within Snohomish County Monday through Sunday.[1] They also operate weekday peak only commuter services between Snohomish County and Downtown Seattle (400 series routes) and the University of Washington (800 series routes). Community Transit operates Sound Transit Express bus routes 511, 512, 513, 532 and 535 and maintains the equipment used. Most weekday DT Seattle commuter and Sound Transit routes are contracted to First Transit. All First Transit contracted routes operate from Kasch Park, while all in house Community Transit routes operate from Merrill Creek. [2]

Bus Routes

Community Transit has over 50 fixed route bus services. To see a full list of the agency's routes, including all current routes and many deleted routes, see List of Community Transit Bus Routes.

Community Transit's service area includes large parts of Snohomish County, including Lynnwood, Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo, Snohomish, Marysville, Arlington, Darrington, Lake Stevens, Monroe, Gold Bar, Granite Falls, Brier, Stanwood and parts of Everett. The agency also operates commuter and local services into King County, including Shoreline, Northgate and Downtown Seattle.

The agency operates two Swift lines, which are express bus routes with some Bus Rapid Transit features. These lines are the Blue Line, which runs from Everett to Shoreline along the Highway 99 corridor, and the Green Line, which runs from Seaway Transit Center to Canyon Park along the Airport Road and Bothell-Everett Highway corridors.

The agency's local routes numbered 100-199 typically serve the more urban parts of the county, with many of these routes focused on the Lynnwood area. The 200-299 routes service more rural areas, including Arlington, Stanwood and others. Some routes numbered in the 100s and 200s are commuter services, and run during peak hours only. Apart from those routes, however, most of the local services run 7 days a week, although some have more limited service hours and days.

Community Transit operates several commuter express routes into King County, all of which run during weekday peak hours only. Routes numbered 400-499 serve Downtown Seattle from various Snohomish County destinations, while routes numbered 800-899 serve Northgate Station.

Community Transit also operates six bus routes on behalf of Sound Transit, which are express services that connect Snohomish County destinations to Northgate Station, Downtown Seattle and Downtown Bellevue in King County. Community Transit also offers Dial-a-Ride Paratransit services, which complement the local fix route network.

Several Community Transit routes are currently operating with reduced service levels due to COVID-19 and related driver shortages.
