Community Transit provides an essential service, helping people get from where they are to where they want to be throughout Snohomish County and beyond. We work hard every day to make sure your ride is a safe and healthy one. But we need your help too.
We’ve always been committed to making your ride with us a safe one, and that’s true now more than ever. You’ll see our commitment to safety throughout your journey with us.
We disinfect every bus, every day with an emphasis on surfaces that are touched more frequently, like handrails and poles. We’ve also increased cleaning schedules in our employee and public spaces.
We require a mask when riding and at all transit facilities. We provide masks on board all of our buses for those who need one. Masks are also provided to all employees and are mandatory in all shared spaces. In addition, drivers are provided with a face shield option and gloves for added protection.
We’ve created an environment on our buses that promotes safe distancing, including closing off seats to provide separation and guiding customer flow through the bus to minimize passing close by others. We also deploy extra buses to help increase social distancing on routes that have more riders.
We've upgraded to the highest-rated air filters for our buses and buildings. Even with the windows closed, the air inside of our buses is exchanged with fresh air about every five minutes. As weather allows, drivers and riders may also open windows for additional air circulation.
We’re working closely with local public health authorities to follow the latest guidance for safety measures. We have dedicated a team to regularly create and evaluate our policies, procedures, and practices.
We encourage use of an ORCA card for fast, contact-free fare payment. Just tap your ORCA card on the reader at the front of the bus, or at the Swift station, and you are ready to go.
From health screenings and temperature checks to sanitizer and protective gear, we provide our employees with the tools and resources they need to stay safe and protect others. We also provide generous time-off options for employees and families impacted by COVID-19.
We are proud to provide an essential service to riders who need it each and every day. We ask that you help by using our services responsibly and making safe choices before, during and after your ride.
Avoid riding if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Maintain a 6-foot distance from others whenever possible. Enter the bus at the front door (middle door for Swift) and exit through the back door to help minimize passing close by others.
Wash your hands often, or use hand sanitizer when not near a sink, and avoid contact with common, high-touch areas.
Using an ORCA card is the fastest way to pay and no need to handle cash or change. Just tap your card on the reader at the front of the bus, or at the Swift station, and you are ready to go.
