Community Transit is expanding its Swift bus rapid transit (BRT) network by adding a third line, Swift Orange Line.
Swift Orange Line will connect south Snohomish County to the region’s high-capacity transit network when Sound Transit’s Link light rail extends to Lynnwood in the coming years.
Construction began in May 2022. Swift Orange Line service starts in 2024.
The Swift Orange Line will provide east-west connectivity across southern Snohomish County, linking Mill Creek and Lynnwood.
Swift Orange Line will also connect the park and rides at McCollum Park, Ash Way, Swamp Creek, and Lynnwood.
Community Transit is planning to update and redesign McCollum Park Park & Ride and Edmonds College Transit Center as part of the Swift Orange Line project.
New transit centers will be built, and stations will be redesigned with a rain shelter, improved lighting, and real-time information signs. Improvements will be made to roads and technology to make buses faster and more reliable.
