1500131986911Seattle Waterfront Connex has announced that, due to demand, it has added an additional, larger vehicle to its daily Waterfront-to-downtown-Seattle transportation pilot program, to increase the frequency of trips and better serve city visitors and the public. Seattle Waterfront Connex has also adjusted its service from one route to two new routes: an eight-stop Daytime Service operating between 7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. daily; and an expanded Evening Service route, providing the same daytime loop, plus three additional evening stops between Seattle Center and Waterfront restaurants and attractions, available 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. These changes aim to increase frequency and decrease route loop times to 25-30 minutes throughout the day, improving options for Connex riders through the end of the pilot on September 30, 2017.

The eight Daytime Service stops include:
Washington State Convention Center
Westlake Center
4th Avenue and Lenora
Pier 66/Bell Harbor
Pier 59/Seattle Aquarium
Pier 55/Argosy/Colman Dock
Pioneer Square/near 1st and Cherry
Marion and 5th/near Columbia Center

The 11 Evening Service stops include:
Washington State Convention Center
Westlake Center
4th Avenue and Lenora
Chief Seattle Statue/Tilikum Place
Seattle Center/MoPop
Pier 69/Victoria Clipper
Pier 66/Bell Harbor

Pier 55/Argosy/Colman Dock
Pioneer Square/near 1st and Cherry
Marion and 5th/near Columbia Center

Seattle Waterfront Connex is a privately funded, public/private collaboration aimed at exploring solutions to address a gap in current public transportation options between the Waterfront and the downtown core.

“When we launched this pilot in July, we expected Emerald City Trolley riders would use the service to extend their hop-on-hop-off Seattle experience late into the evening – and this has played out. We’ve also learned that the need goes deeper. Over the final two weeks of the pilot, we’ll use our onboard and online channels to continue to gather feedback about the range of considerations that should be explored as part of a future, longer-term pilot program with public-private funding,” Maura Hoss, VP of Product Development and Marketing with Seattle Waterfront Connex and the Emerald City Trolley, comments.

Riders can download the Connex Daytime Service or Evening Service app from translocrider.comto track the position of the Connex vehicles at any time and to get estimated arrivals at the pickup location closest to them.
