Today’s the scheduled start of the city’s Delridge repaving project – reminder that its first phase means a detour for southbound traffic on Delridge between Trenton and Henderson for about two months, but northbound traffic will NOT be detoured. Detour details here; more on the start of work, later today.


  1. I tried to like it; I gave it a few months. Today, I am officially done with the Rapid Ride.

  2. CandrewB, I’m very close to giving up on commuting by bus, too. Are you driving,biking, car pooling, hitchhiking?

  3. @candrewB – I feel your pain. give biking a try, if possible. I have not looked back to taking the 56 and I dropped a couple pounds.

  4. I imagine I will be doing different things depending on the weather. Most days drive in, sometimes drive to the Water Taxi, sometimes ride motorcycle in the warmer months, sometimes walk the extra distance to the 116 or 55. What I will no longer be doing is cramming myself into that virus incubator known as the Rapid Ride.

  6. I have given up on Rapid Ride, and the insanely late 128 and the new 50.

  7. Hey at least you have different bus options. Try having to completely rely on the 120 as your only bus.
