Walk Score: 73.7
Transit Score: 59
The ferries make for some picturesque background, but it's the city's bulked-up light rail and buses that have made living in town a sweet dream. Already dense neighborhoods in Pioneer Square, Belltown, South Lake Union, Capital Hill and North Beacon Hill have benefited from added rail service, while Freemont, Ballard and the university district are eagerly awaiting their rail spurs. Sure, the rail will get you to Pike Place Market and down to the waterfront, but it's getting a lot more useful for mundane tasks such as grocery getting as well.
