Everett Transit is hosting an open house on Monday November 21st from 12Noon – 3:00 PM to discuss the proposed March 2023 service changes. This event will be located at Everett Station’s Great Hall.
The March 2023 service change proposal focuses on four key areas of concern:
– Accessibility
– Reliability
– Sustainability
– Safety

Everett Transit is proposing the expansion and streamlining of several major routes that will offer new and improved transit access to schools, shopping, employment and life. These proposals include:

Expanded morning and evening service to empower residents to use transit as a commuting option
Service area expansion and access to life
Introduction of new routes along commonly requested corridors

Everett Transit is proposing more direct service with access to more transfer points that include both local and regional transit service, in addition to earlier and later service on multiple routes throughout the city.

Realignment of routes to create additional transfer points to local and regional system
Expanded morning and evening service to enable residents to use transit as a commuting option
Introducing high-quality transit service earlier in the day to ensure transit users get to where they need to on-time, with less concern

Everett Transit is proposing the streamlining of specific routes to eliminate redundancies system wide, creating access to more destinations, for more people, for the foreseeable future. A major portion of the proposed changes include direct access to more schools in Everett in part, thanks to Washington State legislators passing the Moving Ahead Washington bill.

Create a more usable system that encourages transit usage
Streamline specific routes to offer more direct access and eliminate redundancies
Eliminate barriers and create access points that encourage transit usage among younger residents to establish understanding and confidence in public transit

Everett Transit keeps safety top of mind when planning changes to service. To create a safe network for all our customers our proposal includes creating a more direct network, removing unnecessary route overlaps and redistributing service to more utilized areas.
