Metro is building 41 RapidRide station pairs—adding new stations and upgrading some existing bus stops to RapidRide stations. Metro identified station locations using projected ridership, access to transfers to other transit, racial and economic equity, and community feedback. Most stations will be between 1/4 and 1/2 mile apart. That is about the same as five to ten city blocks.
In response to community feedback, Metro is placing RapidRide I Line stations:
- in areas that have a high number of existing riders and potential for increased ridership, and transit connections, into the future.
- near connections to other transit.
- near community facilities and resources like hospitals, schools, and community centers.
How big is the change?
- Most stations require walking or rolling 1/4 to 1/3 mile, or about five city blocks. Depending on your destination, this may be two to six city blocks farther, or a 5-minute walk, from a current stop location.
- Most stations remain within the same block.
