Our history

In 1976, the Snohomish County Public Transportation Benefit Area Corporation (SCPTBA) started serving Snohomish County residents with 18 leased GMC buses. There were no stops; riders would wave at a bus to get the driver's attention to stop.

Our projects

Behind every Swift station, route, or service, there is a project. Others are a collaboration with Snohomish County, Sound Transit, King County Metro, or one of the cities we serve in our service area.
