Seattle, Washington Transit

The Emerald City has several different modes of transit to choose from.

Link Light Rail

Link is a cross between a light rail system and a true metro. Long trains, high speed, and subway portions. Only the median running on MLK in the Rainier Valley holds it back. It is undergoing a major expansion too!

There are two separate streetcar lines, that maybe someday they will get connected together.

 

Seattle Monorail

It is ionic to Seattle as the Space Needle is. It is a good thing since the monorail connects downtown to the Space Needle/Seattle Center.

 

Sounder Commuter Rail

Traffic along I-5 is intense between Tacoma, Seattle and Everett. The Sounder gives a much more civilized travel option for commuters.

Buses
