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.
