As the city works to improve north-south transit mobility and link the First Hill and South Lake Union streetcars through downtown with the Center City Connector, the public is invited to join the discussion.
On Wednesday, join Mayor McGinn and city councilmembers at the first open house to discuss the City Center Connector Transit Study. Officials will be looking at different transit types, like rail and bus, and on what street service might run.

- We’ve reported on the streetcar construction along Broadway between Pike and Pine following the initial work in front of Seattle Central.
- Seattle received federal money to study the new streetcar line connecting the Pioneer Square end of the First Hill line to the SLUT.
- The city is on schedule to define alternatives for the project this month, with a final report due in Feb. 2014.
The outcome of the study will be the selection of a locally preferred alternative (LPA) that has stakeholder support and is backed by a viable financial and implementation plan. This will position the city well for future funding opportunities that will help us design a build a project
