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. We need your help too.
What we are doing to help protect our riders
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.
Providing masks if you need one
Masks are recommended when riding public transit. We provide masks on board all of our buses for those who need one. Masks are also available to all employees. In addition, drivers are provided with a face shield option and gloves for added protection.
Upgraded air filtering and circulation
We've upgraded the 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.
Following public health guidelines
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.
Taking care of our employees
Throughout the pandemic, we have given special care to the safety of our employees and their families. We have put policies and procedures in place in response to changing conditions to make sure we are doing what we can to provide a safe working environment.
Keeping you informed
What we ask riders to do to help protect themselves and others
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.
Masks are recommended while riding our service to help protect yourself and others. Masks are available on board our buses if ever you need one.
Stay home when sick
Avoid riding if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Wash your hands frequently
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.
