Oh, the people you'll meet on Seattle's most crowded bus line

Apr 17, 2018

The RapidRide E Line is Seattle's most crowded bus route, with more than 17,000 boardings each weekday. It connects Aurora Avenue North to downtown.

It’s a rolling microcosm of the city, with passengers from many walks of life on board.

On the 5 a.m. run into downtown Seattle, the inky blue of pre-dawn still visible through the windows, Tom Fleege and Deborah Phillips sit in their regular seats at the front of the bus. After riding together for a couple of years, these two passengers have struck up a friendship on this route. 

Listen to their story above.
