The Seattle Center Monorail is once again not running. Apparently, one train has a mysterious mechanical problem while the other is in renovation.
For all its recent technical unreliability, on the rare occasions I’ve had to ride it, I find the view of the city from that height to be astonishingly beautiful. In practice, however, when I’m trying to get from downtown to Seattle Center, if my choice is a free transfer to the #2 or a $2 monorail ride, being thrifty wins out.
This is just idle wishing (in light of the inevitable financial issues), but it’d be nice if they could unify the fare structure and therefore honor transfers. Maybe when the Metro fare hits $2?
