What could be greener than a new $ 1.9 billion light rail expansion that offers thousands of people an alternative to driving every day? Celebrate the happiness of Seattle with us on Saturday The two parties to Sound Transit are separated by two miles of twin tunnels – and free rides all day between the celebrations:
We’re launching the U Link service with a free community celebration on March 19th

At Capitol Hill Station, DJ Riz Rollins and street musician Pasquale Santos, giant Jenga, a temporary tattoo parlor and a parade of the “Eurodance Party” (we don’t even know what that means!) Will have fun at Capitol Hill Station from 9am to 5pm . . You are invited to take a “self-guided” tour through the stations, enjoy some interpretation videos and get your hands on special memorial stars made from the wood of the large red building wall.
TO UPDATE! This only from Sound Transit. You may want to make sure you get to Capitol Hill Station by 10am for “confetti cannons” and a countdown Major Ed Murray.
