Community Transit on Sunday Schedule for Independence Day

June 21, 2007
Agency Also Reminds Public: Fireworks Not Allowed on Buses   Snohomish County, Wash.Community Transit bus routes will operate on Sunday schedules to mark Independence Day on Wednesday, July 4. There will be no commuter service to King County or Boeing-Everett. Dial-A-Ride Transportation also will operate based on Sunday schedules. For those wishing to travel to King County, Sound Transit bus routes will operate based on Sunday schedules.   The Community Transit RideStore, located at the Lynnwood Transit Center, and Customer Information Services also will be closed on Independence Day. Information about bus routes and schedules is available 24 hours a day on the Internet at www.communitytransit.org.   All bus service, the RideStore and Customer Information Services will return to regular weekday schedules on Thursday, July 5.   As Independence Day nears, Community Transit also reminds passengers that fireworks of any kind are not allowed on the agency’s buses or property, such as Park & Ride lots.   Even “safe and sane” fireworks sold in some communities can create a safety hazard, said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Lt. Rodney Rochon, head of the agency’s Transit Police unit.   “It is important to provide bus passengers with a safe, secure trip every time they use Community Transit buses, and we ask that all passengers respect their fellow bus riders by not bringing fireworks on board,” Rochon said.   Fireworks, including the “safe and sane” types, cause dozens of injuries each year in Snohomish County alone, and thousands of dollars in property damage. By following fireworks safety rules – including not bringing them onto Community Transit buses – many of these injuries and much of the property damage can be avoided.   In addition to fireworks, Community Transit does not allow the following items on buses: Community Transit operates 33 local bus routes, 31 commuter routes and DART paratransit service throughout Snohomish County. It also offers carpool matching, one of the nation’s largest vanpool programs and offers travel training to disabled and senior citizens. Call Community Transit at (425) 353-RIDE or (800) 562-1375 for bus information, or (888) 814-1300 for carpool or vanpool information, or go to www.communitytransit.org.
