Seattle’s most happening — and maybe most storied — bus line

The most congested bus route in King County runs down Aurora. It’s called the RapidRide E Line. The crowding on those buses brings all kinds of people together.

Rider Vera Mapes: “One time I saw a homeless man in a wheelchair get kicked off the bus by four cops. And then he pissed on the bus stop when he got off.”

Rider Ezgi Coban: “I saw people smoke crack before on the bus.”

I wonder if there any routes like this
one, in Tacoma. The only one that might,
is Route 2. It goes from Downtown Tacoma,
to Tacoma Community College and then to
Lakewood.

Route 2, I think is the longest
Bus Route, in Tacoma. As far as
riders are concerned, I wouldn't
know.

well the 72 is not quite that bad but is just about as crowded and you can find a huge range of humanity there even when it is not.
I have seen deals made on MAX but not on buses where the driver can see or hear or get wind of them, or maybe I am just not that observant.
I have seen homeless people warming up, commuters in suits going to their regular day jobs, and waitresses and  teenagers as well.
Good story about what can be all in a day's work for a transit driver in a busy city.

She has the attitude she needs to have for her run and her route. 
As long as people are nice to each other the bus keeps going.
If you can't fit behind the line the next one is right behind me

 

 I have learned how important that line is, in allowing the driver some ability to see behind her on the bus.
