When in Seattle, do as the Seattleites do

Good morning readers, from Seattle, Washington! My family is currently on vacation and our first stop is in Seattle. The emerald city is a beautiful place full of culture, landmarks and even green initiative! While playing tourist in Seattle, you need a good, cheap, and fast way to get around. The monorail is cool, but I think the coolest is the bus system. The buses in Seattle run on electricity. Throughout the city there are wires, which are attached to the buses by long rods. These provide the buses with their electricity. At first glance, you would think wow, the trolleys are still running, but it's actually the buses (using the wires). The system is very efficient and a cheap way to get around. Staying green from the emerald city!
