At Community Transit, we are committed to providing a safe work environment, including providing personal protective equipment and resources to help protect yourself and others. We have worked closely with Snohomish County public health authorities to create our safety protocols. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented temperature and health check procedures when entering our buildings, provide our drivers with protective gear, perform daily disinfecting of buses and employee common areas, upgraded to the highest-rated air filters available for our buses and buildings, and more to help keep our employees and riders safe.
