Plan Your Trip

Move at the Speed of Swift

  • It’s frequent — Buses arrive every 10–12 minutes on weekdays and every 15–20 minutes on early mornings, evenings, and weekends. You don’t even need a schedule. Just get on and get moving.

  • It’s fast — Buses stop for about 10 seconds per station. You pay your fare at the station, then board at any of the three doors.

  • It features signal priority technology — Swift routes feature special bus signals and bypass lanes to keep buses on a swift schedule.

  • It uses real-time information — The next bus sign tells you when your bus will arrive.

  • It’s accessible for all — Station platforms are higher than a standard curb and nearly even with the floor of the bus making Swift fully accessible for wheelchairs, disabled passengers, bikes, strollers, and carts.

  • It even has onboard bike racks  Just roll your bike through the rear door and onto a rack (it’s that easy).

Additional lines of Swift are in the works to create even more connections and more opportunities to keep you moving. Swift Orange Line will connect with Sound Transit Link light rail at Lynnwood Transit Center in 2024. Swift Blue Line will also extend in 2024 to meet Link light rail at 185th Street in Shoreline.
