The extension of the new RapidRide C Line to South Lake Union began in March, thanks to Seattle voters who approved Proposition 1 that gave the city of Seattle funds to expand weekday in-city bus service.
In addition to service expansion, bus riders waiting along the new line will get to see special artwork on the sidewalks – when it rains.
SDOT worked with Rainworks, a Seattle start-up that takes advantage of our weather by installing rain-activated artwork on sidewalks that’s sure to surprise and delight riders waiting for Metro buses in West Seattle, Belltown and South Lake Union.
The art installations give riders a positive message when it rains as they wait for the new RapidRide C Line to South Lake Union, which was extended via Westlake Avenue.
Other improvements to the new RapidRide C Line to South Lake Union:
- More service on Route 40, operating every 9-15 minutes
- More peak time service for Route 70
- More service and shorter route for Route 8
- Dedicated transit lanes on Westlake Ave N
- Transit stop upgrades
