Community Transit Service (CTS)

Program Overview

Community Transit Service (CTS) was developed to provide safe and efficient transportation to the general public and persons with special needs as specified by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and as defined by contracts into which Community Transit Service may enter from time to time.

Our buses have low floors, so your first step on board can be easier, equipped with a wheelchair lift or ramp. Our operators are trained to assist people with disabilities in boarding and securing their wheelchairs on the bus. By Federal Law, our operators announce major transfer points, intersections, and destination points along each route.


Community Transit Service aims to implement and maintain an efficient and effective transportation system to serve the general public.


  • To provide transportation designed to accommodate the general public and persons with disabilities.
  • To maintain a trained staff for the operation and control of the system.


It is the policy of Community Transit Service that no otherwise qualified person shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subject to discrimination under any program or activity undertaken by Community Transit Service. Community Transit Service serves persons regardless of race, sex, religion, or national origin.
