Members of Metro’s two standing advisory groups, the Transit Advisory Committee and Accessible Services Advisory Committee, got a sneak peak of the RapidRide A Line last week.
They boarded a new RapidRide bus at the King Street Center, which houses Metro’s administrative offices, and were taken to Metro’s South Facilities building, where they saw the new RapidRide shelters being assembled. The tour also included a ride down the A Line corridor and a brief talk by Christopher DeLaurenti, the sound artist chosen to create a work for the A Line (more on this in a later post).
Committee members said they enjoyed the tour and were impressed with the new RapidRide bus and rider facilities.

Will a complete schedule be published for RapidRide so that we know when the buses “every 10 minutes” or “every 15 minutes” are scheduled to arrive?
There will be a schedule posted at each stop, and a printed version will be available also. Most of the times will be listed as frequencies–for example, “every 10 minutes between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m.”–but actual schedule times will be listed for the hours between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. The A Line will also be in Metro’s Regional Trip Planner, which calculates trips based on schedule times.
