Swift Green Line Grand Opening

Swift Green Line Grand Opening; March 24

Swift Green Line Now Open 

Thank you to all who attended the Swift Green Line Grand Opening and launch event on Sunday, March 24. The agency hosted the community celebration at McCollum Park in Everett and provided many family-friendly activities for attendees. The celebration also included an inaugural Swift Green Line ride departing from the park at noon. 

Now that service has begun, Community Transit is monitoring ridership numbers. There were about 1,800 boardings each day, for the first days of weekday service. Green Line ridership so far is comparable to the Blue Line's first week of service in 2009.

Tips for Riding Swift

For current Swift Blue Line riders, riding Swift Green Line will be a breeze. For riders who are not used to Swift and bus rapid transit systems, it's important to note that riding Swift is a different experience from riding a regular bus.

Some of the ways Swift can differ from a regular bus are:
  • Riders pay their fare prior to boarding the bus.
  • Riders can board at any of the Swift's three doors.
  • Buses come more frequently: every 10 minutes on weekdays, and every 20 minutes during early morning, nights and weekends.

Blue & Green Connection

Newly installed Swift Blue and Green Line signage is now visible on Swift station columns at the intersection of Airport Road and Highway 99, where the two lines connect.

The signage clearly identifies each station as “Blue Line” or “Green Line” to eliminate any confusion that might be caused by having two Swift lines operating in the same area.
