Accessibility

We are committed to an accessible transportation network.

The Seattle Streetcar's accessibility aligns with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

No person shall be subject to discrimination based on race, color, national origin, or disability. The City of Seattle provides language translation as available and interpretation for those with limited English proficiency and provides auxiliary aids and/or alternative formats to persons with disabilities.

The Seattle Streetcar is accessible and easy to board for all users. Streetcar stations feature low floors and high platforms for a minimal gap between the platform and streetcar. Wheelchair ramps on the streetcar 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.

You can request an accommodation, modification, translation, interpretation or language service, through our ADA portal. King County Metro, Seattle's Streetcar provider also has accessible services.

Service Animals

Service animals are welcome on the Seattle Streetcar at no additional charge. This includes animals-in-training accompanied by a trainer or person with a disability.

Bikes

Bikes are allowed, space permitting, in the center section of the streetcar. Please use the bike racks, located in the center section of the First Hill streetcar 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.
