Waterfront Streetcar

Seattle is developing into a very diverse transit system. Seattle operates a moderate sized Electric Trolley Bus system, second only to San Francisco in the US.

Light Rail links the airport to downtown. In downtown Light Share shares the transit tunnel with Fuel Cell busses (originally the tunnel has hybrid busses using trolley poles in the tunnel, and diesel outside of it). Construction is underway to extend Light Rail north to the University district.

Seattle also has a modern streetcar line linking Westlake district with South Lake Union. Construction has started for more streetcar lines around Seattle.

In 2000 Commuter rail service, dubbed the Sounder, started linking Tacoma to Seattle. Now there is a north line to Everett. Construction continues to extend south of Tacoma to Lakewood. 

Seattle is well known for the monorail that links the Space Needle with Westlake section of downtown.

Finally there used to be a heritage/tourist trolley, called waterfront streetcar that linked the International district with the waterfront. But that closed down several years ago for Art Museum needs and pending reconstruction of the Alaska Way Viaduct.
