Swift bus leaving a bus stop

Fast, frequent, convenient

Everything about Swift — the buses, stations, routes, and the way you pay — makes getting around Snohomish County faster and easier. Swift connects you with regional transit options, getting you farther faster.

Quick facts
  • Fast. Buses stop at all stations and depart after about 10 seconds. Signal priority technology, dedicated lanes, and real-time info help keep Swift running swiftly.
  • Frequent. Buses arrive every 10 minutes on weekdays, and every 20 minutes on early mornings, evenings, and weekends.
  • Convenient. Swift charges the same fare as other buses. Pay at the station with an ORCA card or use a ticket kiosk before boarding.
  • Accessible. Swift is accessible to wheelchairs, disabled passengers, strollers, carts, and bikes.

Two Ways to Pay

Tap with ORCA. Your ORCA Smart Card is the best and fastest way to pay because it automatically gives you a two-hour transfer to all buses. Just tap your card and hop on!

Buy a ticket. Pay with cash or credit card at a ticket kiosk on the station platform. Tickets are valid only on Swift and until the expiration time shown (1 hour and 30 minutes). Always keep your ticket as proof of payment (and a souvenir).

An ORCA card provides an automatic two-hour transfer to all buses. Make sure to tap your card at the ORCA reader each time.

With a Swift ticket, you can transfer to another Swift bus until the ticket expires. Transferring to any other bus will require another full fare for that bus.
