Seattle tram travel on the streets, but on rails, kind of like a cross between light rail and buses. Seattle has just two streetcar lines, one in South Lake Union (with stops throughout South Lake Union, Denny Triangle, and McGraw Square) and one in First Hill (with stops in Capitol Hill, First Hill, Yesler Terrace, Central District, the International District, and Pioneer Square as you can see in Seattle tram map. These are great if you are staying near one of the lines and need a way to hop around the neighborhood. Seattle first electric streetcars opened in 1889 and by 1892, the city had 48 miles of electric streetcars and 22 miles of cable railway. In 1902, the Seattle-Tacoma Interurban Railway opened, which includes stops in Rainier Beach, Renton, and Kent. And by 1910, a Mount Vernon-to-Bellingham line opens.
One line of the Seattle tram runs from downtown to Lake Union. The newer Capitol Hill line runs north-south along Broadway to Pioneer Square. The Lake Union line will take you to the Museum of History and Industry on lake Union; the Pioneer Square line will deposit you in the heart of Seattle historic district, where you will find the Underground Tour, Smith Tower Observation Deck, and lots of architectural and artistic character. Fares are $2.50 for adults, $1 for seniors, $1.50 for ages 6 to 17 as its mentioned in Seattle tram map. Seattle first tram line was built in 1884 along 2nd Avenue in downtown Seattle by Frank Osgood (1852-1934). The horse-drawn line was an instant success, and in 1889 Osgood introduced electric trams.
The line connects the South Lake Union neighborhood to Seattle vibrant downtown core, consisting of 1.3 miles, nine stops, and full of shops and restaurants as well as Lake Union 12-acre waterfront park. This line consists of 10 stops and stretches 2.5 miles, connecting to Link light rail at the Capitol Hill and International District stations, the Sounder Commuter Rail and Amtrak intercity rail at the King Street Station, and Metro Transit buses at several points. Adult Fare as its shown in Seattle tram map: $2.25 (coins, credit, ORCA cards); $4.50 (all-day pass).
