Sound Transit, Seattle's new light rail line, opened last weekend and 92,000 passengers gave it a try for free. Now it costs from $1.75 to $2.50 per person to ride the system.

A five-year, $2.3 billion project, the 14-mile line currently connects downtown Seattle and Tukwila. By the end of 2009 it will reach Sea-Tac Airport.

Clients wishing to ride the light rail line buy tickets at vending machines or use pre-paid smart cards. They can also use bus passes and transfer slips.

Long-range Sound Transit plans call for service to the University of Washington by 2016. Extended lines will eventually service the outlying areas of Lynnwood, Federal Way and Redmond.
