Greetings Community Transit Colleagues,

I want to provide you with an update on the status and steps we are taking in response to last Sunday’s tragic shooting event.

Official notice from Community Transit

CT Colleagues: 

I write with somber greetings this morning.  By now many of you have heard that we experienced a fatal shooting last night aboard a Swift coach in Everett.  Our coach operator is safe and unharmed.  Based on initial reports, the incident involved passengers.  Everett Police responded to the scene and took a suspect into custody.  EPD is now on point handling the investigation. 

Greetings Community Transit Colleagues,

This month we reach the one-year milestone of our COVID-19 pandemic response. Your commitment to each other and to the people we serve during this incredibly challenging year has been remarkable.
