Swift is Washington State’s first bus rapid transit line. It serves a 17-mile route between Everett and Shoreline and is designed to move people quickly, whether you are traveling from Everett to Lynnwood, Edmonds to Shoreline or anywhere in between.
Community Transit is developing plans for a second Swift line that would serve a 12.5-mile route between Paine Field/Boeing and Canyon Park/Bothell.
Since launching our first bus rapid transit line in November 2009, Swift has become Community Transit’s highest ridership route, thanks to the following features:
Swift station platforms are higher than a standard curb and nearly even with the floor of the bus, making it easy to step aboard.
People who use wheelchairs or mobility devices enter at the front door and have an option to use a passive restraint system that doesn’t require coach operator assistance. Standard restraint areas are also available.
Swift is a partnership between Snohomish County’s two local transit agencies: Community Transit and Everett Transit. Fifteen of the 28 Swift stations and more than half of all Swift passenger boardings are in Everett city limits.
Thanks to the innovative nature of bus rapid transit, both Community Transit and Everett Transit received competitive state and federal grants to fund most of Swift's capital costs (buses and stations).
Everett Transit also contributes operating funds for Swift.
