As the countdown clock in our sidebar indicates, we’re 30 days away from Swift’s opening day on Sunday, November 29th. They’re borrowing some pages from Link Opening Day:
Swift will begin service at a community celebration from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29 at the Swift Crossroads Station at Highway 99 and 196th Street SW in Lynnwood. The family event will feature music, games and a christening of the Swift buses. As a special treat, customers can ride Swift buses for free until midnight on that day.
Anyone interested in being one of the first 200 passengers aboard the first run of Swift on Nov. 29 are encouraged to send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “Swift Bus Ride” and include their name, phone number, email address and city of residence.
There are 80 passengers per bus, so with VIPs and media I’m guessing that ticket would get you on one of the first 3.
Swift is the region’s first branded bus rapid transit line. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about it at the comprehensive Swift website.
