Buy Local for Transit

Community Transit receives nearly 70 percent of its funding from voter-approved sales tax revenues to provide public transportation services in Snohomish County. As consumer spending in our county dwindled during the recession, so did revenues for our transit services.

Because of these economic challenges, Community Transit reduced expenses, laid off a third of its workers and cut 37 percent of its bus service, including all service on Sundays and major holidays.
