Safety & Security

Transit is a Safe Way to Travel

  • Community Transit contracts with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department to provide safety and security for our buses and park & rides.
  • Our coach operators meet high standards of professionalism and training; approximately 83 employees have received national safe driving awards for operating more than 12 years without an accident.
  • All buses have two-way radios and alarm systems to notify our dispatchers if there is a problem or need for assistance. We also have security cameras on board buses and at some park & rides.
  • Community Transit has a "bait car" to catch car thieves at our park & rides.

Please report all crimes that occur on Community Transit property to police. Doing so helps us reduce and identify problem activity.

With Transit Watch and our contract with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department, we continue to work to improve overall safety for our riders and employees.

See something? Say Something.

Transit Watch

If something seems out of the ordinary call the police or inform a Community Transit employee immediately.

What to watch for:

  • Unattended backpacks and packages
  • Suspicious behavior
  • People loitering, staring, or watching employees and customers
  • Vandalism or graffiti - we want to keep our transit system clean and comfortable

Report any incidents of suspicious behavior or activity to the police by calling 911 or notify a Community Transit employee. Do not confront suspicious individuals by yourself.

Include as much information as you can, such as location of an abandoned item or description of a suspicious person or vehicle, their direction of travel, and license plate.

Transit Watch

Transit Watch is a nationwide safety and security awareness program designed to encourage the active participation of transit passengers and employees to maintain a safe transit environment.

Community Transit works with you, our passengers, and the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department to ensure one of the safest transit systems in the country. Still, it's important to be alert, aware and prepared when you're riding Community Transit.
