Swift Green Line Launch

Snohomish County, Wash. – KIRO 7 traffic reporter Tracy Taylor will emcee the Swift Green Line Grand Opening celebration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 24 at McCollum Park, 600 128th Street SE in south Snohomish County. Community Transit’s second bus rapid transit line will officially begin service at noon with a VIP ride departing from the event.

Congressman Rick Larsen, Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers and State Senator Marko Liias will be among the local dignitaries speaking at the event. There will be music, food trucks, caricature artists, giveaways and other activities at this free public event. Student artists from Cascade High School will be on hand to autograph copies of their artwork that was created for the event.

The Swift Green Line is Community Transit’s second bus rapid transit line. Construction on the 12.5-mile project started in 2017 between the Canyon Park Park & Ride in Bothell and the new Seaway Transit Center near Boeing Everett. The agency’s first BRT line, the Swift Blue Line, began service in 2009 along Highway 99 between Everett and Shoreline and is the agency’s most popular route.

Swift Green Line buses will run every 10 minutes on weekdays, and every 20 minutes early mornings, nights and weekends. Passengers pay their fares at Swift stations located about three-quarters of a mile apart, and can board through any of three doors. These features combine with transit signal priority at intersections to reduce about a third of the travel time as regular local buses.

The Swift Green Line will connect with the Swift Blue Line at Highway 99 and Airport Rd., creating a high-frequency, high-capacity transit network. With stations at Airport Rd. and 100th St., the Swift Green Line will also serve the new Paine Field Airport passenger terminal.
