Community Transit To Commuters: No Fireworks on buses please

Community Transit is reminding Snohomish County residents not to bring fireworks on buses during the 4th of July weekend:
Community Transit also reminds all passengers that fireworks of any kind are not allowed on the agency’s buses or property, including park & ride lots. Even “safe and sane” fireworks sold in some communities can be a safety hazard, said Snohomish County Sheriff’s Sgt. Dave Sorenson of the Transit Police Unit.

“Community Transit is committed to providing a safe ride for all of its passengers, and the public needs to help with that,” he said. “Following the rules and not bringing fireworks – or other hazardous products – on buses helps keep everyone safe.”

In addition to fireworks, Community Transit also does not allow items including:

· Fuels like gasoline, diesel and propane, or containers that once carried these fuels;

· Hazardous chemicals

· Explosives

· Illegal weapons

Hopefully this isn't too much of an issue. Also CT will be operating all of their routes on a Sunday schedule for July 3rd, so keep that in mind if you commute between Seattle and Snohomish County.
