You're Invited to the Swift Orange Line Block Party on March 30, 2024

Get ready to immerse yourself in a day of excitement and community spirit at the Community Transit Swift Orange Line Block Party. Swift Orange Line is Community Transit's third bus rapid transit (BRT) line, connecting south county communities with fast, frequent bus service.

Join our family-friendly celebration on Saturday, March 30, from 12 to 3 p.m. at Edmonds College. How to get there? By (Swift) bus, of course! 

Whether you're a transit enthusiast, foodie, or just looking for a fun day out, mark your calendars because you won't want to miss this!

Let's talk about the food first because- let's be honest—who doesn't love delicious eats? Picture this: Triton Taste, Flyin Taco, GoodBelly, and Dreamy Drinks food trucks—all serving their mouthwatering specialties just for you. From savory to sweet, we've got your cravings covered.

  • The party offers a busload (pun intended) of free activities lined up to keep the whole family entertained:
  • Dive into a world of creativity with face painting, balloon art, and temporary Henna tattoos.
  • Challenge your friends to yard games or simply relax and enjoy the live bands.
  • Capture memories with hand-drawn portraits.
  • Watch for characters and superheroes from your favorite books and movies.

Join us in welcoming a diverse lineup of esteemed organizations at the Swift Orange Line Block Party! This is your chance to learn about and engage with community partners while enjoying the festivities. We'll also have a special passport activity where you can gather stickers and earn a prize at the end of your journey!

Connect with representatives from:

Plus, all attendees will receive a commemorative ORCA card as a token of the day's festivities. In addition to being a keepsake, this ORCA card is good wherever the ORCA card is accepted for fare payment (the Washington Ferry system is not included). Enjoy unlimited rides through April 30, 2024! We suggest registering your card at so you can load the card after April 30 to use anytime.

So, gather your friends and family, and join us for a day of fun, food, and community spirit at the Swift Orange Line Block Party. We can't wait to see you there!
