Community Transit provides vans for commuters to share trips to work together.  Employers will often help pay for part or all of the cost.

Vanpooling allows you to ride with people who you know and provides greater flexibility in choosing a time to depart. A monthly fare covers all costs, including gas, insurance, and vehicle maintenance. If there’s an emergency, the program guarantees a free alternative ride home.

Bicycling to Transit


A great way to get to and from transit is by bicycle.  Community Transit, Island Transit, and Skagit Transit vehicles are equipped with bicycle racks on the front so you can take your bike with you.  

Bicycle lockers with an hourly rental fee of 5¢/hour are available at the Stanwood I-5 Park & Ride and Smokey Point Transit Center.  To access the lockers, you can either download an app for free onto your smart phone or purchase a card.  Visit for more details.


If you lock your bicycle to a bike rack, be sure to secure it with a quality lock such as a steel U-lock, fixing the frame and at least one wheel to the rack.  Learn more tips on how to properly lock your bike at

In the event your bicycle is stolen, you will want to have saved a description, serial number, and photos of your bike.  A great place to save this information is, a website run by a nonprofit that has helped recover nearly $25 million worth of bikes.  Registering bikes on Bike Index is free.
