Community Transit has plans to extend the Swift Green Line farther south in Bothell for more fast and frequent bus service and new transit connections. The Swift Green Line Extension will add up to six additional pairs of stations between the popular destinations of Canyon Park, downtown Bothell, and UW Bothell/Cascadia College. People are being asked to take a survey and give feedback on the proposed stations by Nov. 10.
The Swift Green Line opened in 2019 providing fast, frequent bus service between Seaway Transit Center in Everett and Canyon Park in Bothell. The Green Line Extension is part of a broader expansion of the Swift bus rapid transit (BRT) network that is planned for Snohomish County.
To take the survey and learn more, visit the online open house at bit.ly/SwiftGreenExt. Community Transit will also host a live webinar with a Q&A session on Zoom on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6-7 p.m. Details are available at the above link
Approximate locations under consideration for the new stations include:
Two of the proposed Swift Green Line stations* would be shared with Sound Transit Stride S3 Line, another BRT service planned for the area. These shared stations will provide easy connections for riders and efficient use of resources for both agencies. Construction of the Swift Green Line Extension is expected to start in 2027, with service starting between 2028 and 2031. The project will be constructed in tandem with the Bothell Way Multimodal Project which will widen the roadway.
Community Transit Swift BRT lines provide fast and frequent transit service along major residential and commercial corridors. The Swift Blue and Green lines carry more bus riders than any other routes in Snohomish County. Construction is now underway on Swift Orange Line, which will connect to light rail in Lynnwood in 2024. Swift service was first launched in 2009.
