connecting West Seattle with Seattle's

Imagine stepping into a cabin the moment you arrive at the Alaska Junction SkyLink station (one of 6 stations), then gliding over tree tops and traffic for a scenic 14 minute ride to the SODO Link Light Rail station.
From SODO, you can catch Link for a 26 minute ride to SeaTac Airport. Or stay on the gondola for 3 more minutes and arrive at the International District Transit Hub. There, you can catch Link for a quick ride downtown, a 13 minute ride to University of Washington, or a 20-30 minute ride to Bellevue or Redmond. Other options from the ID hub: take a bus or street car, or walk to King Street Station, Pioneer and Occidental Squares, or restaurants, sports and event venues.
SkyLink is an urban gondola we propose as an alternative to the expensive, intrusive light rail system that Sound Transit is planning for West Seattle. Once approved, it can be built in just two years, at a cost that is 1/10th of Sound Transit's plan.
Why do we need SkyLink?
