RapidRide Covers the Eastside

Last week I rode one of the new red hybrid-electric RapidRide buses.  These are great buses, big windows, quiet, and roomy.   The buses are great but my favorite new addition that comes with the RapidRide system is:
ETA of next bus displays in readerboard
Finally, you'll know how long the wait is.  Waiting for a bus seems 3 times longer when you have no idea when it's suppose to arrive.  The posted route map is also an outstanding improvement over the previous 10 point type timetables and route numbers.
clear graphic view of the bus route and its stops
It's a great ride
