How could a transit consolidation potentially benefit the community?

A core consideration of the study is whether a consolidated transit system would be better for Everett residents and businesses and the rest of the county than the current status as two separate and cooperating transit systems. A consolidated transit system would nearly double transit service in Everett and provide many other improvements such as:

  1. More connections – Make it easier to travel between the City of Everett and other places in the county
  2. More destinations – Provide transit to more people and more   locations where they want to go
  3. More possibilities – Provide new ways to get around with micro transit and other innovations 
  4. More frequent bus service, shorter wait times
  5. Fewer transfers
  6. Connections to light rail – Provide more bus service that links with light rail coming to Lynnwood in 2024 and prepares for the extension of light rail to Everett
