RapidRide Buses Not So Fast

From The Seattle Times:

The new RapidRide C and D lines have been under performing especially in Ballard. Much of this is due to missing infrastructure, namely signal priority at lights. However, it is very hard to make this kind of line work without separate bus lanes.

The A line in the South end somewhat works because there are carpool lanes down much of its length. The C and D line buses need to run through the crowded downtown core.
