As the calendar turns to summer, there are hopeful signs all around us. We see the economy improving, traffic picking up on roads, airports and ferries, and vacation plans taking shape. There have been in-person graduations and sports events, as well us families reuniting after more than a year of staying home.
It feels good to feel hopeful again, because let’s face it, the past year and a half has been especially challenging and even lonely for many people. Through it all, we can be proud at Community Transit that we’ve been able to provide essential mobility to our customers without missing a day of service through the pandemic, helping people get to work, get food for their families, and get to medical appointments.
We can also be proud of our effort to beat back the virus. We’ve taken steps to control the spread at our operating bases and worked hard to keep riders safe while riding. As case counts trend downward, I want to spotlight a few key things we are focusing on as we pivot to planning for brighter days ahead.
There’s so much to look forward to, and I look forward to sharing the ride!
