Members of Metro’s two standing advisory groups, the Transit Advisory Committee and Accessible Services Advisory Committee, got a sneak peak of the RapidRide A Line last week.
They boarded a new RapidRide bus at the King Street Center, which houses Metro’s administrative offices, and were taken to Metro’s South Facilities building, where they saw the new RapidRide shelters being assembled. The tour also included a ride down the A Line corridor and a brief talk by Christopher DeLaurenti, the sound artist chosen to create a work for the A Line (more on this in a later post).
Committee members said they enjoyed the tour and were impressed with the new RapidRide bus and rider facilities.
