Seattle, Washington Transit
The Emerald City has several different modes of transit to choose from.
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.
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.
Traffic along I-5 is intense between Tacoma, Seattle and Everett. The Sounder gives a much more civilized travel option for commuters.
Seattle has a huge trolley bus system along with traditional buses, and Bus Rapid Transit. Regional buses add to the mix.
The now closed heritage streetcar line had linked the International District with the Seattle Waterfront.
