Swift 5th Anniversary

Swift: Hitting It's Prime As It Turns 5

The state’s first bus rapid transit line is now 5 years old!

On Nov. 30, 2014, Swift marked its fifth year of providing quick, reliable service along Highway 99 in Snohomish County.

On any given weekday, Swift carries about 5,700 riders – that translates into 125,000 riders a month, and about 1.5 million riders a year!

For several days in Fall 2014, Swift carried more than 6,000 riders a day!

In 5 short years, Swift has become Community Transit’s:

  • Most popular route (highest ridership)
  • One of our most productive routes (most riders per bus)
  • The cornerstone for a new network of countywide transit service

What's So Great About Swift?

Our customers tell us again and again that they love Swift because it is predictable.
 
Buses arrive every 12 minutes between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays, and every 20 minutes at night and Saturdays.
 
With next bus signs at each station counting down to Swift’s next departure, you don’t need a schedule.
 
Swift service is also fast. Because riders pay at the station, buses are typically stopped for only 10 seconds. That keeps the bus moving and gets you to your destination faster.
 
Whether you’ve been riding since the beginning, or just started this year, thank you for riding Swift!
