Swift Green Line Wins VISION 2040 Award

Congratulations, Community Transit!

Community Transit has won a 2019 VISION 2040 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council for the Swift Green Line. The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows.

"The Swift Green Line is an important transit connection for Paine Field and the new commercial terminal,” said Josh Brown, Executive Director of PSRC. "It is also an excellent example of how we can do great things when we work with our partners."

The award was presented at Community Transit on August 21, 2019

The 12-mile green route connects Paine Field and Boeing’s Everett Factory via Mill Creek on SR 527 to Canyon Park in Bothell with frequent service. The Green Line serves the new commercial flight terminal at Paine Field and the Boeing Everett Factory. Riders will be able to connect to the existing Swift Blue Line at Highway 99 as well as the larger Community Transit network.

Since Paine Field opened to commercial flights I've been asked about taking a bus from the Mukilteo Ferry to Paine Field. The "Swift Green Line" isn't that swift for those of us from Whidbey Island. It would require 3 buses and at least an hour of travel time to go 5 miles. Is there any talk of adding a direct route between the ferry and Paine Field?
