King County is hosting a public meeting Tuesday morning on routing and station locations for its new RapidRide E Line, which will travel along Aurora Avenue North from Shoreline to downtown Seattle. The RapidRide E Line should start in Fall 2013.
RapidRide is intended to run 19 hours a day, seven days a week, with special buses arriving at least every 10 minutes during the weekday morning and evening commute. RapidRide buses have low floors and three doors, so people can get on and off quicker.
The meeting by the County Council’s Transportation, Economy and Environmental Committee begins at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in King County Council Chambers, on the 10th floor of the King County Courthouse, 516 Third Ave. If you can’t make the meeting, you can email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also watch committee proceedings online at http://www.kingcounty.gov/kctv.aspx.
The full County Council is expected to make its final decision in late July or mid-August.
