Speed and reliability

Improving bus speed and reliability in Renton, Kent, and Auburn.

RapidRide is more than a big red bus. We’re building business access and transit (BAT) lanes (where the outside lanes are reserved for buses and right-turning vehicles only), giving buses a priority green light, upgrading communication technology, and making other changes to keep buses moving and ensure your bus arrives frequently and reliably.

We’re building projects to ensure the bus moves quickly.

These changes will

  • help people travel up to 20 percent faster by bus from Auburn to Renton.
  • ease congestion for people traveling by car as up to 6,000 more people take the bus to get to where they are going.
