Dick's opens restaurant along Swift line

“Dick’s is the place where the cool hang out,” according to Sir Mix a Lot. With the opening of the new Edmonds location today (scheduled for 3 p.m.), Mix and his posse can now take Swift bus rapid transit to get a deluxe with fries.

The new Dick’s is less than a city block from the Swift stations at 216th Street on Highway 99, in the Top Foods parking lot. Several other buses converge on this location, Routes 101, 110, 112, 405, 406 and 871. Transit presents a great option for getting your burger, but don’t eat on the bus!

The anticipated opening of the first Snohomish County Dick’s location helps Community Transit’s bottom line. The agency receives 0.9 percent of every sales tax dollar spent in the service district, so your $10 Dick’s purchase sends 9 cents to support transit service! If you really want to help, eat more!

What are some of your favorite eateries or entertainment destinations that you get to on Community Transit?

  1. Looks like Dick's management was smart in putting their newest store in this location. It is not only very close to Swift service, it also is very close to other CT bus service. Wow, what a successful grand opening they have had so far. I'd imagine other companies will move in along the Swift corridor. There is a lot of opportunity for growth. CT will also benefit from the sales tax revenue (much needed)....
