Swift Orange Line breaks ground in Snohomish County

Congratulations, Community Transit!

Community Transit has begun construction on its Swift Orange Line in Snohomish County. The new bus rapid transit line will expand access to destinations around the region

“Swift Orange Line represents a significant infrastructure investment in Snohomish County, one that will benefit generations to come,” said Community Transit CEO Ric Ilgenfritz. “Our elected leaders recognize the explosive growth in the county, and we appreciate their support and partnership in developing transit service that will meet the evolving travel needs of people in the community.”

The Orange Line is on schedule to be completed in 2024 and the 11-mile bus rapid transit (BRT) route will make travel quick and easy for people who are travelling in southwest Snohomish County. 

Swift Orange Line will run between Edmonds College in Lynnwood and McCollum Park Park & Ride in Mill Creek. It will connect with Link light rail at Lynnwood City Center Station (currently Lynnwood Transit Center), and with Swift Blue Line at Highway 99 and 196th Street in Lynnwood. It will also connect with Swift Green Line, sharing stations on Bothell-Everett Highway in Mill Creek.

PSRC provided $21 million in funding for the Swift Orange Line.
