Seattle Times: West Seattle first in line for RapidRide service

According to the Seattle Times

"West Seattle's future bus-rapid-transit line will receive $21 million in new funding from the Federal Transit Administration, covering three-fourths of the project cost for buses, stations and road-lane revisions, according to a federal list released Monday."

This is the line that goes through the Junction, past the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock, and terminates at Westwood. There are some preliminary plans for a Rapid Ride route on Delridge, which could go a LONG WAY toward resolving the limited east-west transit options that tend to isolate Delridge. It remains to be seen whether that route would benefit from this new federal funding.
