Doing things the environmentally friendly way has always been part of Community Transit operations; Environmental Stewardship is one of our agency’s Core Values.
Here are just a few of the ways Community Transit (and our riders) live Earth Day, every day:
Your personal choices do make a difference. Community Transit, in turn, has done much to ensure that our buses, vans and operations make as little impact on the environment as possible.
Community Transit joined with the Federal Transit Administration and nine other transit agencies from across the country to develop and implement an Environmental Management System (EMS). EMS is a way of reducing our impact on the environment using the “plan, do, check, act” model for our operational processes and the products we use. See our agency's Environmental Policy Statement.
EMS allows us to:
1. Analyze our impact on the environment
2. Establish programs for reducing negative environmental effects
3. Monitor progress towards these goals
The end result is greater efficiency and control, as well as a better environment. What have we accomplished? Cleaner air, cleaner water, less waste and more energy efficiency!
