Community Transit cutting services

Monday, August 29, 2011

Our News Partner Lynnwood Today reports that Community Transit is in process of deciding how to cut their routes.

"Community Transit’s Board of Directors is expected to decide on Thursday which routes will be affected by service cuts. The agency is slashing 20 percent of service, or roughly 80,000 hours, due to a shortfall blamed on low sales tax revenue. That’s in addition to cuts made in 2010 that eliminated Sunday and holiday service. 
“'By this time next year we will have cut about a third of the service and about a third of the employees that we had at the beginning of 2010,' Community Transit CEO Joyce Eleanor said in April."

Many Shoreline residents commute to Seattle and the University of Washington on CT routes, either via I-5 or Aurora. CT shares the Aurora Transit Center with Metro and the City of Shoreline has long been interested in luring CT even farther south, to the Park and Ride at N 192nd.

The Board of Directors will decide on the details of service cuts this Thursday, with suggestions of more to come.
