Service Change for March 2018
Our proposal (as seen below) for the March 2018 service change was increasing the efficiency of Route 2 and streamlining its path to bidirectional service focused on connecting the Everett Mall with Mariner Park & Ride. The comment period for the proposal ended December 31.
Over 100 customers, most of them who would be affected by the change, submitted their feedback either in person, on the phone, or via email and our website form. The split between the customers in favor and those opposed was close, but leaning towards keeping the current route, many citing the need for access to Airport Rd. and for connections from Evergreen Way.
We decided to postpone the implementation of changes to our Route 2 until Community Transit’s Swift Green Line will provide service on Airport Rd. every 10 minutes. The service will provide much faster connections and improved service on Airport Rd., and is currently scheduled to open March 2019. The service would address many of the concerns presented in the comments we received.
We are planning a few schedule adjustments. The new schedule will be available online March 1.
|Route Number||Planned adjustments|
|Route 12||Saturday a.m. trip added to maintain trip time consistency.|
|All routes||Minor schedule adjustments to improve on-time performance.|
The proposal for Route 2 is to change it from a circulator route to bidirectional service.
The change allows for greater frequency and span of service, along with a shorter trip between Everett Mall and Mariner Park & Ride. The Airport Road loop would not be served.
If this change is favorable to the public, it will take effect March 18, 2018.
