Environmental Stewardship is one of our agency's Core Values.
It influences the decisions we make with every transit center we build, every bus we put on the road and every vehicle we maintain.
Here are ways Community Transit and our customers help make as little impact on the environment as possible:
In 2004, Community Transit joined with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and nine other transit agencies from across the United States to develop and implement an Environmental and Sustainability Management System (ESMS).
ESMS is a way of reducing our impact on the environment using the “Plan, Do, Check, Act” model for our operational processes and the products we use. We also have an Environmental Policy Statement (PDF).
ESMS allows us to:
The end result is greater efficiency and control, as well as a better environment.
What have we accomplished? Cleaner air, cleaner water, less waste and more energy efficiency!
