In 2020, Route 120 will become the RapidRide H Line. King County Metro is collaborating with the City of Seattle to improve riding transit, walking, and biking in the Delridge area. This month, we are sharing the latest on these improvements and seeking input on how best to balance the needs of everyone who uses the corridor, whether they’re in a bus, a car, walking, or riding a bike.
King County Metro will be bringing RapidRide amenities and improving service between the Seattle City limits and Burien.
Converting Route 120 into the RapidRide H Line will keep people moving by:
- Keeping buses frequent and on-time
- Adding more buses at night and on weekends
- Upgrading RapidRide bus stops with lighting, real-time arrival info, and more
- Improving sidewalks and paths for people walking and people riding bikes
What types of improvements is Seattle considering?
- Option 1 would add bus-only lanes, both all day and at peak times along sections of Delridge Way SW. A widened sidewalk would accommodate people who bike and walk from 23rd Ave SW to SW Holden St. People who bike would be encouraged to use the existing neighborhood greenways, which run parallel to Delridge Way SW.
- Option 2 would add bus-only lanes between the West Seattle Bridge and SW Alaska St. It would also add about 3 miles of southbound protected bike lane from SW Andover St to SW Kenyon St.
