While RapidRide H Line service began in March, we are continuing some paving and punch list work (see FAQs below for more information). This work will not impact bus service.

We will continue sending email updates monthly to keep you informed on what to expect near you. We’ll also reach out to route neighbors, businesses, and local community organizations throughout construction to notify them when and where work will happen, as well as what impacts to expect and construction wrap ups.

Please feel free to share this information with your neighbors and encourage them to contact us via email or telephone, join our virtual office hours session or sign up for project email updates.
