From baggage carousel 16 at the north end of the terminal, go up one floor to the skybridge level. Head across skybridge 6 and turn left through the parking garage to the light rail station. A free electric shuttle service also operates continuously between the light rail station and the airport skybridge.

SeaTac Airport is also served by several bus routes operated by Sound Transit and King County Metro.

Sound Transit operates express routes with bus stops at the sound end of the main terminal on the lower drive. The most convenient route to this bus stop is exiting baggage claim at the southernmost door by carousel 1 and walking a short distance south to the bus stop.

King County Metro bus routes stop adjacent to the light rail station on International Boulevard.  Follow the directions to the light rail station and take the pedestrian bridge across International Boulevard to access these buses.

Details and schedules for these connecting bus routes are available here.
