Everett City Council decision to approve or amend the proposed fare changes
Why is this change happening?
To encourage the use of transit as an equitable option within the City of Everett, as we continue working to build a more accessible and accommodating transit platform for our city to grow on. The Free Youth Fare option is made possible due to the approval of the "Move Ahead Washington" bill that was passed earlier this year by Washington State Legislators.
