Waterfront Streetcar

NOTE: LINE IS CURRENTLY SHUTDOWN

Seattle operates a tourist trolley line as part of its bus transit system. It started as just a short line along the Seattle Waterfront.  Now it links the International District/King St Station with Pioneer Square and the Waterfront. 

The line uses ex-Melbourne Australia cars for service using high level platforms.

The line is currently shutdown due the lack of maintenance facilities. However, the city plans to build a new "carbarn" and possible extensions are in the planning stages.
