Accessibility

Everett Transit is committed to providing equal access to all our services. Whether you need a ramp or lift to board the bus, the schedule book printed in an alternate format, or an interpreter to speak with a customer service representative, we are at your service.

Getting on the bus

Some Everett Transit buses have low floors, where only one step is required to board the bus and all buses can kneel lower to the curb to aid boarding.

All buses are equipped with a lift or ramp. All stops are available for customers using mobility devices.  Exceptions are made when the stop is closed to all or when the lift/ramp can’t physically be deployed or it may be damaged in doing so.  

Customers can expect to be asked to relocate from priority seating at the front of the bus to accommodate seniors and people with disabilities.

Wheelchairs

Reasonable accommodation will be made to allow all styles of mobility devices on Everett Transit buses and vans.

All buses have wheelchair securement stations. Coach operators are trained to secure mobility devices on the bus.

Stop Announcements

Our buses are equipped with automated systems that announce the next stop. Operators will make the announcements in the absence of an automated system.

The buses are also equipped with visual announcement reader boards inside the front of the bus that will show the location of the next bus stop.

Service Animals

Service animals are allowed on Everett Transit buses. Learn more on our Riding with Animals web page.

Reduced Fare

Seniors age 65 or older and people with disabilities are eligible to purchase a Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP). The permit entitles the bearer to the reduced fare on fixed-route buses, commuter trains and Washington State Ferries throughout the Puget Sound Region. If you do not obtain the RRFP, you are able to ride at a reduced fare by showing your Medicare or ADA paratransit card.

The half-fare requirements of the Federal Transit Act Section 5307 (d) (1) apply to any person presenting a Medicare card duly issued to that person pursuant to Title II or XVIII of the Social Security Act.

Up to two children age 5 or younger travel free with a customer who presents valid fare. Youth ages 6 to 18 qualify for youth fare; proof of age may be requested.
