Madison Street Bus Rapid Transit
Moving more people on Madison St with fast, frequent, reliable public transit
Last updated: August 21, 2017
The Seattle Transit Master Plan (2012) identified Madison St between the Colman Dock Ferry Terminal in downtown Seattle and 23rd Ave E as a future high-capacity, bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor.
Madison Street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) will provide fast, frequent, reliable, and safe public transportation between 1st Ave in downtown Seattle and Martin Luther King Jr Way. The route will serve densely developed neighborhoods in downtown Seattle, First Hill, Capitol Hill, the Central Area, and Madison Valley. It will connect to dozens of bus routes, the First Hill Streetcar, and ferry service at the Colman Dock Ferry Terminal.
Madison Street BRT is the first of 7 new RapidRide lines in Seattle. When service starts in late 2019, King County Metro will operate Madison Street BRT as RapidRide Line G.
RapidRide in Seattle is a combination of service improvements, capital investments, and design treatments that build on the success of existing RapidRide service. Madison Street BRT is also making additional station improvements.

The table below outlines the project's key milestones and basic schedule.
Madison Street BRT is partially funded by the voter-approved Levy to Move Seattle and the voter-approved Sound Transit 3 (ST3) package. We are pursuing other funding sources for final design and construction, particularly Federal Transit Administration funding. Estimated project cost is $120 million.
