Seattle Transit
Link Light Rail

Sound Transit

Light Rail opened during the summer of 2009. A one stop extension to the SeaTac Airport opened in December 2009. This line is a high quality Light Rail system.  It has extensive elevated portions from the Airport to Rainier Valley. There it runs in the median of MLK Blvd. Then it enters a tunnel under Beacon Hill, with a subway station. From there it joins the Busway to head to the original Bus Tunnel under downtown, now called the transit tunnel, as trains and busses share it now.

Extensions to the University District is underway!.
