Bridging the Gap — Transit Improvements

Bus Service Improvements

The City of Seattle’s Bridging the Gap and King County Metro’s Transit Now initiatives purchase increased bus service in Seattle. Many buses were added to Metro routes 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 14, 26, 28, and 44 in September 2008. Additional improvements followed on September 19, 2009 with more coming in September 2010.

Transit Priority Corridors

Bridging the Gap provides funding for street improvements focused on increasing the speed of bus travel in key corridors that carry very high concentrations of transit trips and connect Seattle’s Urban Villages throughout the City. Design and construction of improvements is already underway in four corridors around the City: Rainier Ave. S., West Seattle, Ballard-Uptown, and NW Market and 45 th Streets.

Strategic Improvements

These are investments in strategic locations to keep transit moving and significantly improve Seattle’s transit environment. These projects are drawn from areas identified as transit choke points and opportunities in heavily used transit corridors.
