Safe and Healthy Tips for Riding Transit
Here's what we're doing to help keep our customers and employees healthy and safe.

Snow Routes

Occasionally, snow or icy conditions impact Community Transit bus service. While one route may be on snow route, another route may not be.

Here are three things you can do to get the most updated information about snow events:

  1. Visit communitytransit.orgRider alerts are posted on the home page and updated at least every hour during major weather events. These alerts will indicate which routes are on snow route.
  2. Sign up for Rider Alerts. Sign up for this free service here. If you already receive e-alerts, you can update your subscriptions, too. Select the routes you frequently ride to get email or text alerts about service impacts to your route(s).
  3. Follow us @MyCommTransBus on Twitter for real-time service updates during business hours.
  4. Real-time alerts are also posted on the homepage of our website under Rider Alerts.

Snowflakes & Snow Route Maps

Snow routes let drivers and passengers know the safest routing a bus will take during a snow event. In addition to hills, there may be other areas along a route that are not served during a snow event. These stops may not have snowflakes, but will not be served when a bus is on snow route. Please use the snow route map to determine the portion of the route that will not be served.

On Snow Route maps, a solid line indicates segment of route being served, a dotted line indicates portion not served.

If your bus stop has a snowflake symbol on the bus stop sign and there is snow or ice on the ground that is impacting service, please wait at another stop. 

Snow Schedules and BusFinder

During a snow event, regular bus schedules do not apply:

  • Buses may come less frequently
  • Double Decker and 40-foot buses are used when there is snow and ice on the road. Articulated buses are generally not used and may be kept on base.
  • It will take longer to get to each destination; if buses are chained, they can only travel 25 miles per hour.
  • Rider alerts (on the home page of the website, via Rider Alerts and/or on Twitter @MyCommTransBus), will indicate how often a bus may arrive.

BusFinder is our real-time bus information web application. During snow events, it may not be accurate because buses will likely be on re-route, and/or traveling at slower speeds due to icy road conditions.
