Advertising on the Monorail

Seattle Center Monorail is a fast, direct way to travel between downtown Seattle’s Westlake Center Mall and Seattle Center. Built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, the Monorail is an historic Seattle landmark and celebrates its 60th anniversary on March 24, 2022.

The Monorail travels along a one-mile route between downtown and Seattle Center—the trip takes approximately 2 minutes. Because the train travels on an elevated guide-way, there is no street traffic to contend with and the train has excellent visibility in the city. This eco-friendly transportation option is powered by electricity with no carbon emissions. The Monorail carried over 2 million passengers in 2018.
