SEATTLE’S STREETCAR NETWORK
The Center City Connector streetcar will be built along Stewart Street and First Avenue, which will connect the two existing streetcar lines for a complete system spanning 5 miles with 23 stations. Passengers will now be able to access Pike Place Market, Colman Dock, and Pioneer Square via the streetcar, with service to 12 neighborhoods between South Lake Union / Westlake and First Hill / Capitol Hill / Chinatown-International District.
Connections & RIDERSHIP
Once complete, The Center City Connector streetcar will carry over 20,000 passengers per day to some of the major destinations within our city. The map below shows the new streetcar’s proximity to landmarks and other destinations. Businesses along the line are estimated to have a 14% increase in sales, equal to $8.4 million per year.
The Center City Connector streetcar is the only high-capacity transit project planned before 2035, when the LINK light rail extension opens for service. Over the next 15 years, 40,000 more households and 60,000 more jobs are expected to move into the area. A complete Seattle Streetcar system will provide a fast, convenient link between neighborhoods. Improved connections across the city will expand the reach of businesses along the corridor, with streetcars arriving every five minutes during peak travel times.
