Seattle Center Monorail was built for the 1962 World’s Fair to provide a crucial link between the fairgrounds and downtown. Since that time, it has carried over 100 million passengers and continues to serve locals and tourists alike. The Monorail is owned by the City of Seattle and operated by Seattle Monorail Services.
Help us say “Happy Birthday” to the iconic Seattle Center Monorail—we’ve had a great 55 years so far, and here’s to 55 more!
