Rapid Ride is Rocking The Ridership in Seattle!

So it looks like the new C Rapid Ride line is by far more popular than the existing two (or I guess the one out to Ballard). Maybe I’m off, but I don’t even recall if they really so a legit ridership spike when the other two opened.

Good for Seattle though, getting that ridership up and people out of their cars! Money back into the economy instead of flowing out to middle eastern (or Russian) places.

Between this and Amazon buying streetcars for service in Seattle, they’re gettin’ some pretty decent bumps in ridership. Now they just need to work on the biking issue… they should be seeing larger numbers biking than do. Part of the crux is the extremely dangerous conditions downtown. How about a single road into and out of town that is bike only? Now that would be Seattle into an actual leadership position (well, maybe not next to Vancouver BC)!
