Seattle: Greatest Cities for Mass Transportation

Consisting of an above-ground and underground light-rail system, bus service and a downtown monorail, Seattle's innovative and reliable mass transit systems are the preferred mode of transportation for many of the city's residents. "I live in the city, so there's really no need for a car -- mass transit is so easy here," says resident and receptionist Stephanie Fischer.

Unique to the Emerald City, the Seattle Center Monorail system links the downtown area to Seattle Center, the city's entertainment hub, and offers a fun riding experience. "I always take my family and friends to ride it when they're visiting," Stephanie says.

Also convenient for both residents and visitors, Seattle's light-rail system, Central Link, runs from the downtown area to the airport. The city is currently working on extending this line for another 3.15 miles, connecting the city's downtown area to the University of Washington campus.
