Skagit Transit Updates
COVID Safety Updates!!!
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.
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
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.
