Share your ideas for a new streetcar on First Avenue

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it to last night’s Center City Connector streetcar open house at Pike Place Market! Nearly 100 people attended to share their great ideas and ask questions.

We presented options for running a new streetcar on First Avenue that would connect the South Lake Union and First Hill lines through downtown. This new line could serve upwards of 30,000 riders a day, and run from Westlake to King Street every 5 minutes for most of the day. Imagine that kind of service!

Mayor McGinn talks to the audience about the project.

Missed the open house? No worries. Check out all the open house materials on the project website and take this survey to let us know what option for a new streetcar on First  Avenue you like best, and why. The survey will be open until November 15.
