Lynnwood's microtransit test begins this fall, others possible

On-demand transit around the Alderwood mall is coming this fall, and three other cities could see something similar from Community Transit.

Leaders of the public transportation agency for most of Snohomish County are in the early stages of looking at Arlington, Darrington and Lake Stevens as the next areas for microtransit service.

“We want to respond to industry-wide changes and build ridership,” community transportation specialist Kevin Futhey told the board during its regular monthly meeting Thursday. “We want to make travel easier more broadly.”

The presentation drew applause from the Community Transit board members. Jan Schuette, an Arlington City Council member, said her area has seen a lot of population growth and construction of health care facilities used by north Snohomish County residents. In a place like Darrington, which has one bus in the morning and one in the evening, someone who can’t drive might not be able to make medical appointments.
