Seattle’s SLU light rail link opened Jan. 23, connecting the Pioneer Square area with Capitol Hill. For now, this link does not connect with the main Link line, although a short connection is planned. One interesting fact: The new system uses cars equipped with batteries that permit no-wires operations between some stops. See Seattle Streetcars
