Swift bus leaving a bus stop

Fast, frequent, convenient

Swift, Community Transit’s bus rapid transit (BRT), 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 10-12 minutes on weekdays and every 15-20 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 card is the best and fastest way to pay because it automatically gives you a two-hour transfer to buses or other transit, such as light rail. 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 buses or other transit.

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.
