Connecting Your Future

Project overview


Everett Transit has connected the City of Everett’s neighborhoods and employment centers since 1893. Now it is time to think about connecting to your future. In the next 20 years, Everett’s population is expected to grow by 40 to 60 percent. It is essential that we look forward together and consider how this growth will transform our community, including the future of Everett Transit service.

Everett Transit will develop a 20-year Long Range Plan by early 2018 to serve your growing community. The final Long Range Plan, once adopted by City Council, will establish a vision for the future of transit within the City of Everett. The plan will identify future transit service and establish a set of service standards – ultimately creating a roadmap for how Everett Transit will serve you into the future.

How will we plan for the future transit system?


As we plan for the future of our transit system, we will complete a system and financial scenario analysis to keep costs and tradeoffs front of mind, so we can prioritize and make decisions about future transit service. Our goal is to provide you with the best service possible, while ensuring our plan is also feasible and cost-effective, so we can deliver for our riders. 

Check back for more details as we complete these analyses. 

What is the project timeline?


Over the next year, Everett Transit will work with you to develop a 20-year vision for how to serve you and future transit riders within the City of Everett. We expect to complete the final Long Range Plan in early 2018. 

The timeline below includes major milestones for the Long Range Planning process, including when we expect to engage the community in the conversation.

We want to hear from you!


As we begin this planning process, we want to know what is important to you about your local transit service, the role you believe transit should play in our community, and how we can meet your transportation needs into the future.

There will be many opportunities to get involved throughout the process, including in-person and online open houses, and a community survey to help us determine the vision for the future of Everett Transit.  

As we move forward, we will keep you informed about how we are incorporating your feedback into the Long Range Plan.
