Regular & RapidRide Buses


Seattle Metro is working on a series of BRT routes, dubbed RapidRide around King County. The first route "A" opened in 2010. It is more-or-less an extension to the Seattle Link Light Rail. It stops as the 2 southern most stops of the Light Rail line (Tukwila & SeaTac Airport) then continues south on Route 99 to Federal Way Transit center.
