Using the Light Rail System

  1. Get off the train. The light rail train stops at Pioneer Place, a large shopping mall. The conductor will announce the stop, so listen closely!
  2. Cross the Street. Cross the street in front of the light rail train. Across the street is the NIKE store.
  3. Find the Fat Cat. About midway down the block is a statue of a fat cat. Directly opposite the cat is our front door.
