If you haven’t heard, numerous events are taking place during the 5-day event designed for sports enthusiasts of all ages. Just steps from our office in Pioneer Square is the All-Star Alley at RailSpur. Named for the railways that once ran through the area, RailSpur encompasses three historic warehouse buildings in Pioneer Square.

While we’re always about using public transportation, we’re going to strongly suggest avoiding driving and finding parking on Monday and Tuesday. King County Metro, Sound Transit, Kitsap Transit, and the Seattle Department of Transportation Streetcar will go fare-free on Monday, July 10 and Tuesday, July 11.
“All-Star Week is our opportunity to welcome fans from around the region and world to Seattle – and free rides for all means a safe, easy, and enjoyable commuting experience throughout our city,” said Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell.
