RIDE THE STREETCAR

Civil Rights, Accessibility & Bikes

The streetcar is accessible and easy to board for all users. The streetcar features low floors and high platforms for a minimal gap between platform and streetcar, and also features wheelchair ramps that automatically deploy upon the press of a blue button from inside or outside of the car. The streetcar also features both audio and digital display stop announcements. Reasonable accommodations for accessibility is available. 

Bikes are allowed, space permitting, in the center section of the streetcars. Please use the bike racks, located in the center section of the First Hill streetcars and new South Lake Union streetcar, when available.  If the racks are occupied or if you are on a South Lake Union streetcar without racks, please hold your bike upright while riding.

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act, Title II, states, in part, that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in programs, services or activities sponsored by a public entity.” Seattle is committed to complying with the requirements of Title II of the ADA in all of its programs, services, benefits and activities.
