Seattle is a city of hills

Using public transportation and a variety of building elevators and escalators, you can plan trips to a number of downtown Seattle destinations that avoid the hills. When downtown office buildings are closed, Metro bus routes offer service up and down the hills.

North of University Street, travel in all directions is fairly easy because it’s relatively flat. South of University Street, streets and sidewalks become steep and hilly.

Most downtown sidewalks have curb ramps at the corners. In Pioneer Square, curb cuts are not as common. Also, this historic district, which dates from the turn of the century, has a variety of paving materials.
