No longer a coral for commuters, visitors, and eager fans, the renovated Seattle monorail station has transformed into an experience for all. This once drab confined holding area is now an exciting and spacious stopover, as riders enter through the monorail-shaped fair gates, they will enjoy the overhead lights, sounds, and graphic performances.

This renovation allows the monorail to transport up to 3,000 people per hour and extends public transit opportunities with the hope of boosting ride shares.
