The inside of one of the new light rail vehicals. Notice how the seating all faces inward from the sides. Although it may seem less comfortable than forward facing seats, they were just fine to sit on. Once, on a very crowded trolley, this style of seating made it much easier to get off a really crowded train.

A view of the steps retracted to form a ramp at the 4th & King Station. Notice the buttons to open the doors, where the buttons inside match the buttons outside. This was an improvement over the previous older trolleys where a bar inside opened the doors and a mismatched button outside opened the doors.

Multiple Signs

Multiple inward facing signs showed the next stop. The next stop was also announced by a robot voice. The signs stayed lit while the car waited to board additional riders. So many signs make it difficult to miss a stop, and nearly impossible to board the wrong train.
