What is the Pink Line?
The Pink Line is one of six monorail lines planned for a monorail rapid-transit system in Seattle.

Where will the Pink Line Go?
The Pink Line actually consists of two separated segments, which are currently defined as “corridors”, wide strips within which it is expected the pink line would be built.
The Pink North Corridor would be an extension of the Green Line northeast and east from Crown Hill to Northgate and Lake City. The Pink South Corridor would be an extension of the Green Line south from Graham Street to the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal.
What Is the Project Schedule?
The Pink Corridors are two of several corridors being evaluated in the process of selecting a corridor for the second phase line to be built in the city-wide system. During 2004 the Seattle Monorail Project will be evaluating different corridors, with public input helping decide which corridor will be most popular. It is anticipated that a decision on a specific corridor will be made late in 2004 or early 2005.
On July 2, 2004, preliminary reports were released evaluating the two Pink Corridors. One report indicated many reasons in favor of the Pink North Corridor, but noted that it would be necessary to cross the Interstate 5 freeway by Northgate Mall. The report for the Pink South Corridor anticipated poor ridership and considerable opposition from many members of the community.
