I got on Light Rail on its inaugural day at Chinatown/ID station, then rode to downtown and then to the south. I rejoiced that finally Seattle has it and can now be called an international city. But Seattle still has a long way to go compared to many European and Asian cities I visited.
You would think it took us so long we have it, we might have learned all the mistakes of other cities and incorporate all the best features in our light rail system.
Our light rail might not be the best, but if you have not traveled anywhere, you won’t notice. I encourage everyone to use it. It will save you time and stress in the long run. I can’t wait for the ride to go to the Sea-Tac International Airport in December.
A new website called SeattleLightRail.net shows all the buses that go within two blocks of the stations, as well as over 275 locations near the stations.
I rode the Link (trying to think of good synonyms for the light rail like Portland has the MAX) and it was fantastic! Before I knew it, we were already in Tukwila! I really hope the naysayers to this project are marginalized at least until we got a good system of light rail in place.
