RapidRide

Overview

Metro's RapidRide E Line brings a new level of transit to the Aurora Corridor. This is Metro's easiest way to travel, with great features, frequent service and all new buses and shelters. 

The E Line replaces Metro Route 358. It will operate between downtown Seattle and the Aurora Village Transit Center via Greenlake and North Seattle, following the same basic route as the 358.

We know your time is important and designed RapidRide to help you get the most out of your day. We’ve added trips (especially on evenings and weekends) and made several new improvements that deliver better rides and travel times.

During the hours of 6:00 am - 9:00 am and 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm, you’ll experience the benefits of the new BAT (Business Access and Transit) lanes between Shoreline and Seattle’s North 38th Street. You’ll get through busy intersections faster, too, with the help of the traffic signal lights staying green longer (and red shorter) for the E Line. Boarding the bus will be quicker, especially if you have an ORCA card or valid paper transfer. ORCA card users can pre-pay at stations along the route, and board through the back doors, along with riders who already have a paper transfer. Fare Enforcement Officers will randomly board the bus to make sure all riders have paid their fares.

Like all of Metro RapidRide service, you get to enjoy free Wi-Fi, real time bus arrival signs at the stations, well-lit shelters, new buses, and the best service Metro provides.

See you on board!
