Swift 4th Anniversary
Birthday wishes for our BRT
Happy Birthday, dear Swift. Are you four?
You have riders and fans now, galore.
I just want to say.
You still make my day.
You're the bus that I'll always adore.
She has commemorated all four Swift anniversaries with poems and even shared a birthday song on our video gallery. Margaret, who lives in Edmonds and works as a Technical Training Administrator for the PUD in Everett, uses her bike as part of her Swift commute.
We launched Swift as the first bus rapid transit line in Washington state. Swift is an affordable, fast and frequent service on Highway 99 between Aurora Village Transit Center and Everett Station. After only one year, Swift also proved to be our highest ridership route, whisking riders to work, shopping, school and errands. Feasibility studies are underway for construction of a second Swift bus rapid transit line.
Margaret added, “Congratulations, and thanks again for your continued service. I appreciate it as much today as I did four years ago.”
Margaret, thank you! We appreciate your support.
