Pioneer Square Station

During my time in Seattle, I had a packed photography agenda covering lots of the city and the surrounding area.  One of the planned locations was the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel station called Pioneer Square Station.  I arrived at this location at around 11pm and the place was basically empty.  The station is huge, so the 20 homeless people, 5 police and I had lots of room to avoid each other.  Although, I’ll admit that 3 different police officers stopped me for taking photos.  I thought that was interesting since the homeless can live in the station, but photographing the facility apparently isn’t allowed.

Anyway, this station handles the Sound Transit Central Link light rail trains, Sound Transit buses and King County Metro buses.  It is completely underground with entrances at the corners.  I don’t know about you, but I think there is beauty in the design of this station.
