Buses come every 10 minutes on weekdays

Swift is like light rail on wheels — buses stop at every station and are so frequent, you don’t need a schedule. Buses come every 10–12 minutes on weekdays and every 20 minutes during evenings and weekend. 

Rapid boarding

Rapid boarding & seamless service

To keep things moving swiftly, riders pay at the station before boarding at any door. Fares can be paid with an ORCA card or at a ticket kiosk with cash or credit card. Swift buses only stop for about 10 seconds at each station. Signal priority technology and bus lanes keep Swift running quickly through traffic. 

Accessible service for all riders

Service for all

All Swift stations are accessible and Swift buses can accommodate wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, and bikes.  All buses have low floors, with only one step from the ground to the main floor. Announcements are made for every Swift stop.

ORCA savings & reduced fares

Swift fare is the same as other local bus fare and riders never pay more than $2.50 per ride. Reduced fares are available for riders 65 and older, riders with disabilities, Medicare cardholders, and people from low-income households. Youth 18 and younger ride free. When you pay using an ORCA card, your fare payment can be transferred between rides on buses and light rail for two hours after you first use your card.
