If you’re excited about the start of RapidRide service in Bellevue and Redmond this Saturday (10/1/11), here’s how you can mark the occasion:

1. Come to a pre-launch event on Wednesday (9/28/11), at 10:30 a.m. in the west parking lot of Crossroads Shopping Center (in front of Half Price Books).

2. Ride the B Line for free all weekend (10/1 and 10/2), and keep your eye out for RapidRide Man, who will be handing out some nifty folding pocket maps showing the new central Eastside transit network.
