Headed to downtown Seattle or the University of Washington?
Link light rail is just the ticket with trains departing every 6-10 minutes most of the day. From baggage claim, follow the signs for Link light rail. The details: Go up one floor, head to the skybridge at the north end of the terminal, go left through the parking garage to the light rail station. For those that need it, a free electric shuttle service operates continuously between the light rail station and the airport’s main terminal.
Bus service, at your service
Sound Transit operates two express bus routes that pickup and drop off passengers on International Boulevard (State Highway-99) by the Link light rail station. ST Express Route 574 heads south and connects passengers with Federal way, Tacoma, and terminates in Lakewood, WA. ST Express Route 560 serves Burien, Renton, and Bellevue, WA. King County Metro buses also serve the airport.
The most convenient route to the bus stops is to take the walkway through the north end of the fourth floor of the airport parking garage to the Link light rail station and exit to International Boulevard.
Our buses and trains are fully accessible
