Bus Stop Standards

Bus Stop Design Standards

Walmart1

 

The core of Skagit Transit’s service is the ability of our citizens to access our system in a safe and convenient manner. Bus stops that properly placed, accessible, and recognizable at a distance are essential. Our bus stop design standards are designed with the collaboration of our partnering agencies in Skagit County. These standards will provide a template for how Skagit Transit will accomplish this part of our mission.

An additional goal will be to provide information and understanding to staff at our partnering agencies, private citizens/landowners, as well as developers for the placement and improvement our bus stops. This will help explain our focus on things like accessibility for the disabled.  

While accessibility in our bus stop design is required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, it is also good service for everyone. Skagit Transit serves a large percentage of the disabled members of our community, however, accessible stops that are safe for the disabled are also safe for all our riders. If the disabled members of our community can easily recognize and travel to their local bus stop, then so can all our other riders.

Skagit Transit staff are available to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have regarding our bus stops or stop amenities. Please note that the design standards do not supersede any existing local, state, or Federal code, standard or statute.

Questions, comments or concerns about the design standards should be directed to:

Our current service reductions for both Fixed-Route bus service and the Paratransit service are in response to declining ridership during the COVID-19 pandemic. These reductions will enable Skagit Transit to protect our operators and riders while providing streamlined public transportation options for those conducting essential travel.

6AM-7PM            Monday thru Friday

8AM-6PM            Saturday and Sunday

 

MONDAY thru SATURDAY- Fixed Route Service buses will operate on a Saturday schedule unless noted below:

Route 205 and 206 will resume service every 30 minutes on Nov 2nd.

Route 300 will operate every hour on Nov 2nd.

Routes 513, and 750 will no longer operate until further notice.

Route 40X will operate an additional trip from Marchs Point at 7:40AM in addition to its regular Saturday schedule starting Nov 2nd.

Skagit Transit is committed to the safety of our riders and has implemented additional disinfecting methods when cleaning the vehicle fleet daily. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, transit should be used for essential travel only.

Skagit Transit is prepared to continue to provide public transportation to our county for these essential trips. However, our ability to do so depends on our ability to keep our transit employees safe and healthy. 

We are asking our riders, on both fixed route and paratransit, to help us keep our drivers healthy by doing the following:

  • Ride the bus for essential trips only
  • On Fixed Route buses, please exit the bus through the back door, unless using the ramp 
  • Keep at least six feet from our driver and, when possible, other riders
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Stay at home and do not ride the bus if experiencing the symptoms of an illness

We care about the health and safety or our riders, drivers, and community.

We need your help to ensure we can continue to provide bus service by helping to keep our transit employees healthy.

EFFECTIVE June 26th
