King County Metro Route 43 delivers riders back and forth between downtown Seattle and the University of Washington via Capitol Hill. Which means it’s an awesome window to the city’s humanity. You can also use it to tour both Pine and Pike. You’ll find students cramming among the short(er)-distance commuters and apparently homeless guys just enjoying the ride. The trip from downtown to UW can take anywhere from a half hour to the occasional hour-long disaster that makes you wonder if you got on the wrong bus. Here we find the 43 headed northbound — eventually — at E John and 15th Ave E.
