How Should Everett Transit Evolve Over The Next 20 Years?

May 23, 2017

Everett Government

Everett Transit is looking for public input over how to move forward over the next 20 years. Here’s how you can participate.

It will take two years to pull all of the plan elements together.

Everett Transit is seeking community input as the agency develops a long-range plan to establish a vision for the future of transit within the city of Everett to serve the growing community.

The city of Everett is growing and changing – by 2035, the city is expected to grow up to 60 percent.

Now is the time for Everett Transit to think about how to keep pace with these changes and plan for the future.

The final long-range plan will establish a vision for the future of transit within the city of Everett for the next 20 years. The plan, expected to be complete by early 2018, will identify future transit service and establish a set of service standards – ultimately creating a roadmap for how Everett Transit will serve the community into the future. To develop a feasible and cost-effective plan, Everett Transit will look at the current system, financial scenarios, emerging trends and technologies, and changes in the regional transit network.

Everett Transit invites community members to share what they value most about their local transit service and their vision for how transit service can best support the Everett community into the future. The agency wants to hear from both current riders and potential riders.

Help shape the plan

To gather community feedback, Everett Transit will host three in-person events in June throughout Everett, where community members can learn about the project and share input. The Visioning Workshop will also include a presentation and question-and-answer session with project staff. Information about additional opportunities to talk with project staff can be found on our website at www.EverettTransit.org/Future.
