Your Fantastic Journey Begins
We start our day in downtown Seattle, more than a mile from the Seattle World's Fair. Don't worry, the futuristic Monorail will take us there in the blink of an eye. The Monorail has been described as a preview of mass transit of the future.
At Westlake Mall, moving sidewalks, or "speed ramps," will glide you up to the Monorail Terminal. Fares are 50 cents one-way, and 75 cents round trip. Kids ride for 35 cents one way and 50 cents round trip.
Have a seat and prepare for the future. It's only 95 seconds away!
