RapidRide buses come so often, you don't need a timetable. Just show up to your closest RapidRide stop and a bus will arrive shortly to take you on your way. You don't need to rely on a schedule or worry about catching a particular trip.
How to pay your fare
Use an ORCA card
At stations with ORCA card readers, tap your card at the reader and board through any door.
At other stops, enter through the front door of the bus and tap your card, just like a regular Metro bus.

If you have a valid paper transfer (or non-ORCA pass), you also can enter through the two back doors. You don't need to go through the front door.
The paper transfer is your proof of payment. Keep it with you at all times when riding because a fare enforcement officer may ask to see it.
Cash or tickets
Enter through the front door, and pay your fare. If you're paying with cash, please have the exact fare ready; drivers do not carry change.
On RapidRide, the driver will always give you a paper transfer when paying with cash or using tickets. This transfer also acts as your proof of payment so keep it with you in case you need to show it to a fare enforcement officer.
Be prepared for fare inspections
If requested, show the fare enforcement officer your ORCA card or paper transfer for proof of payment. If you do not have proof of payment on RapidRide, you are subject to a citation and fine, RCW 35.58.580.More about fare enforcement (PDF in English and Español)
