Want to enjoy SEAFAIR without facing parking and congestion headaches? Sound Transit is offering special SEAFAIR Express shuttle service today and this weekend, providing a convenient way for fairgoers to enjoy the hydroplane races, air shows and other festivities and leave the hassles behind.

Parking is very limited around the Chevrolet Cup event site, and streets close to the event site are closed to traffic. SEAFAIR strongly recommends riding the convenient Sound Transit SEAFAIR Express which will bring riders to the Genesee Park festivities and back for only $3. Shuttles will operate from the Boeing Oxbow Parking Lot in South Seattle and the Eastgate Park and Ride in Bellevue on the below schedules.
