Staff are on hand to ensure these items are discarded in appropriate containers for composting.

In commemoration of Earth Month this April, Community Transit will be attending some community events and will share its ongoing sustainability commitments on social media. We’ve also got a new Sustainability Program webpage to share.

Catch us at these Earth Month events!

We’ll be at two Earth Month events this year:

  • UW Bothell/Cascadia College’s Earth Month event, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, April 23 at the Campus Plaza
  • Snohomish PUD’s Energy Block Party, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at the PUD Electrical Building Headquarters in Everett

At both events, we’ll have a table to chat with you about Community Transit’s Sustainability and Zero Emissions Programs, and we’ll be handing out free sustainable goodies for you to take home.

Our Sustainability Action Plan has a home

Sustainability is a strategic priority for Community Transit, so we’ve launched a new Sustainability Program website to showcase the work our Safety, Security, and Sustainability Department is doing not only for Earth Month but year-round to help us expand and adopt new and sustainable practices and initiatives into the future.

Challenge mode

During Earth Month, Community Transit employees can choose to participate in the Earth Month EcoChallenge, a worldwide challenge to adopt sustainable practices at work and home. Community Transit is encouraging our employees to make long-lasting sustainable changes in their lives.

At the end of April, the EcoChallenge will show participants how they’ve reduced their personal impact on the environment, as well as the collective impact that our team had throughout the month. You can sign up and challenge yourself, your family, or your workplace at

Staying sustainable at work

Community Transit is also committed to keeping our workplaces clean and green. Our employees will be volunteering to help clean up trash in our neighborhoods near our three campuses along Kasch Park Road, Casino Road, and Hardeson Road in Everett

Looking Ahead

Our commitment to the environment isn’t limited to Earth Month. As stated in our Journey 2025 Long Range Plan, Community Transit is transitioning to a fully zero emissions fleet with a target date of 2044.

The agency is also developing a Sustainability Action Plan that will be brought to the board for adoption in 2025.
