Inclement Weather Bus Tips

December 2, 2013

Snow and/or icy conditions could impact your transit service. Community Transit makes every effort to maintain both safety and service, as well as to communicate with our customers. Please check our website at www.communitytransit.org before you leave to see the latest service information. Often, conditions may change from earlier forecasts.

In snowy or icy conditions, buses may be delayed or detoured. Community Transit has an electronic alerts system that allows people to be notified via email or text whenever major impacts occur. You can sign up based on the bus routes you ride and also by park & ride.

Rider Alerts and our website are updated regularly whenever weather-related reroutes or system-wide delays impact our system. If there is a major snow event, be aware that service will likely be limited as 60-foot articulated buses are taken off the road.

On "snow days," we post morning changes by 5 a.m. and afternoon updates by 2 p.m., as well as regular updates throughout the day as needed. A forecast for the start of service the following day is posted by 8 p.m.

Please be aware that in bad road conditions, service may be limited and/or delayed. We do our best to allow you to make plans in advance.

When taking the bus on these days, please keep these things in mind:
