The King County Council today approved the route and station and stop locations for Metro’s new RapidRide E Line, which will connect Shoreline to downtown Seattle starting early next year. It will replace Metro bus route 358.
The E Line will travel on Aurora Avenue North, except for one northbound station at North 66th Street and Linden Avenue North.
At the highest ridership stops, RapidRide stations will be installed, which feature a shelter, benches, bicycle racks, electronic signs indicating how soon the next bus will arrive, and an ORCA card reader so riders can “tap on” before the bus arrives and enter through any of the RapidRide bus’ three doors.
RapidRide distinctive red-and-yellow buses are energy efficient, low-emission hybrid vehicles with low floors and three doors for easier, faster boarding.
