New Seattle NHL Team to Subsidize Public Transit for Fans
SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle's new NHL franchise is trying to make it easier for fans to get to games in the traffic-clogged city. NHL Seattle has announced that it will fully subsidize public transit costs for fans with season tickets or single-game tickets. The team is also entering into a partnership with the Seattle Center Monorail to upgrade the current system connecting downtown Seattle with the area where the arena is being built. The team will invest $7 million for upgrades for the monorail system, which was originally constructed for the 1962 World’s Fair.
