Ride the S.L.U.T

Yup! You heard me right… The area known as South Lake Union unvelied it’s newest transportation addition, the South Lake Union Trolley, a.k.a S.L.U.T! When the local council realised this unfortunate, yet hilarious acronym, they quickly changed the title to the South Lake Union Streetcar. But that didn’t stop a local coffee shop from printing t-shirts. Kapow coffee shop is now permanently backordered for these amusing shirts.

The $50.5 million project should be completed with trolleys running in as few as 3months. Underlying the lighthearted opposition, however, is resentment over changes in the old working-class neighborhood.

This might not be a streetcar named desire, but it is a form of public transport that will hopefully prove to be useful in cutting down traffic.
