Free downtown bus is no longer a best kept secret.

Ridership is growing on free shuttle bus operated by Solid Ground with a $400,000 grant from the city of Seattle.

Ridership on two free shuttles in downtown Seattle has doubled since the buses went into operation last October. The city funded the service for low income residents after Metro’s ride free area ended.  The service was slow getting started because people either didn't know about it or had difficulty finding the bus stops.
