    I recently returned from a trip to Seattle and my Airbnb was feet from a bus stop for the E-line. I took that bus every day I was there. I was lucky to not experience lots of crowding or rowdiness. I can totally see why the E-line is popular. I was immediately happy to see that the bus has its own lane during morning and evening rush hour. Chicago would do well to emulate some of these features on their most popular bus lines.
