Transportation

The Puget Sound Region has a strong culture of public transportation. As you plan your trip for arrival, departure, and all of the time in between we wanted to provide information on the transportation authorities in the area. In order to plan your trip, we recommend using the transportation directions provided by Apple Maps or Google Maps - both will provide you with real time information on buses and trains. 

Arriving from the airport

Rideshare is available from the airport and on average runs approximately $60 one-way from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. If you use this service, follow the signs in the airport to the specific rideshare area in the parking garage (3rd floor level).

Another option available is the Link Lightrail which has a train that runs directly to the Westlake Station/Downtown Seattle continuously from 5:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. for a one way fare of $3. The Lightrail is about a 38 minute ride from the airport to Downtown Seattle. To get to the SeaTac/Airport Link light rail station from baggage claim, just head up to the fourth floor and cross the skybridge to the parking garage level. From there, follow the signs.If you need assistance with the distance to the Lightrail, there is a golf cart (Train-to-Plane Shuttle) that runs consistently and holds luggage on the back. Most NASPA attendees will use the Westlake Station exit, please verify that it is closest to your hotel as there may be a different station for your needs. 

To learn more about the options provided by Soundtransit at Sea-Tac Airport visit their website.
