Snoqualmie Valley Transportation buses to run during state’s Stay Home order

As public transportation is deemed an essential service, Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT) said it would continue to run buses to serve the community during the statewide Stay Home order issued by Governor Inslee on March 23rd.

The order – in place to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus – requires residents to avoid all public gatherings and eliminate all non-essential exposure to the public, while designating several key industries as essential to day-to-day operations of the state and its residents.

SVT said it will continue operating its regular schedules and hours under this order, since many workers are unable to work from home and must travel to and from their job sites.

Buses will not, though, make stops where businesses are closed. Since the Snoqualmie Casino has closed to the public, the routes scheduled to stop at that location will avoid the casino’s main entrance, entering at the adjacent Crescent Market instead.  

Most trip fares on SVT buses are a suggested $1 donation.

SVT said all buses are thoroughly cleaned twice a day. People who are sick are asked not to travel, and all riders are asked to cover coughs and sneezes and to wash their hands frequently.
