The new UW light rail station is on schedule to open in early 2016, but Sound Transit is giving you a chance to virtually ride the route today, in the driver's seat. The agency has uploaded a video showing the tunnel during a test run from the new Capitol Hill station to the UW light rail station.

At the end of the video, you can see a quick glimpse of the platform in the new UW station. When the train opens, the trip from UW to downtown will take about six minutes.
