Construction crews have removed hundreds of truck loads of dirt at the Seaway Transit Center site making it level with Seaway Blvd and 75th Street.

Coming up at Seaway: 

  • Late June/early July: Excavation of storm water retention vault. Forming foundation of retention vault.
  • July 10: Everett Transit bus stop on south side of 75th will be relocated. See instructions at stop for alternate stop locations. 
  • Mid-July: Narrow lanes on 75th Street to begin construction of new turn lane into Seaway Transit Center. 

Seaway Transit Center will be the northern terminal for the Swift Green Line, but will also be a regional hub for Paine Field–area transit service when it opens in mid-to-late 2018.

Swift Network Map with Swift Green Line

Swift Green Line to Connect Bothell and Paine Field 

Swift is Community Transit's Bus Rapid Transit service. 

Washington State’s first bus rapid transit line opened in November 2009. The Swift Blue Line serves a 17-mile route between Everett and Shoreline. It provides fast, frequent and reliable service whether you are traveling from Everett to Lynnwood, Edmonds to Shoreline or anywhere in between. 

The Swift Green Line will serve a 12.5-mile route between Paine Field/Boeing and Canyon Park/ Bothell. It is expected to begin service in early 2019. 

The Swift Green Line will provide appealing choices for people to travel without a car. Because stations are further apart and fares are paid at the station, Swift buses offer rail-like quickness. 

Not only will this route offer fast, frequent service to those living or working between Bothell and Boeing, but the connection to the Swift Blue Line will greatly expand the ease of transit use in our region. 

The Swift Green Line will cross the Swift Blue Line at Airport Road and Highway 99, establishing a Swift network. 

More Swift lines to the north and east of our county are planned for the future.
