West Side Weeks Away From New Mass Transit System Readiness

In just a few weeks, the west side's Sound Transit will begin a new light-rail service; from the downtown Seattle bus tunnel to Tukwila. It's the first part of a new mass transit system, and according to 'The Stranger' newspaper, it's really cool. A warning aboutthis article, 'Seven Things We Learned While Riding Light Rail for the First Time' though; there's one bad word in it, and it's right off the top. As always, we don't condone bad language here at SRTC.
