Seattle has opened a new cruise ship terminal at Piers 98 and 99 in Smith Cove, at the north end of Elliott Bay, about two miles north of downtown Seattle or about one mile north of the Seattle Center. There have been some transportation problems for cruise passengers going downtown. At times passengers have had to wait for charter buses to arrive.

I suggest that a monorail could provide a link between the cruise terminal and downtown Seattle, and it would pass the Seattle Center on the way. The canceled Green Line would have passed about a half mile east of the cruise terminal, and I suggest building a portion of the Green Line with a branch to the cruise terminal.
