The quick, depend- able Link light rail allows users to have stability around their schedules as trains arrive every six minutes during morning and afternoon commutes. U Link is an exciting opportunity to explore and move around the City without hassling with traffic and parking — you will be able to have dinner in Columbia City and zip up to Capitol Hill for a late-night show in a few minutes! The 3.15-mile segment connects some of Seattle’s largest urban centers and makes walking or biking around the city even easier. The stations feature a pedestrian/bicyclist bridge over Montlake Boulevard, connecting the station to Montlake Triangle for an easy and safe crossing over a busy street for pedestrians and cyclists. Riders will enjoy frequent bus connections, and in Capitol Hill can easily connect to the First Hill Street Car. For cyclists, covered bicycle storage is available at both stations, or you can take your bike on the train. 6 | UrbanStreets Seattle New Link Light Rail STATIONS OPEN!
