Seattle, here I come

I'll be in Seattle this weekend, mainly to try out the new additions to the transit network: the Link LRT and the South Lake Union Trolley.

If I still have any readers in the area, I would not be opposed to grabbing a cup of coffee. And I'd also appreciate pointers on any must-sees in transit, cycling, or pedestrian design/infrastructure or good urban planning projects.

I have been to Seattle before. In fact, I strongly considered moving there back in 2007, but I ended up in DC instead. It's a great town, and I'm glad to have the opportunity to visit again.

The last time I was there, I missed out on a lot. The Bus Tunnel was closed for conversion to Link, the Monorail was closed because of the collision, and neither Link nor the Trolley were open. And I didn't have time to ride Sounder.

But I plan on taking care of all of those things on this trip. Anything else I should be sure not to miss?
