The Emerald City is a powerhouse of public transit in the Pacific Northwest. The Light Rail system runs in a subway thru the center city and is growing rapidly. There are 2 modern streetcar lines and a commuter rail system. Lastly, due to its hills, it still maintains a rather larger trolley bus network.
Yakima has a heritage trolley that runs on weekends on original Yakima trolley and trolley freight tracks in the middle of public streets!
