Getting to/from the airport

Light Link trains depart from SeaTac airport every 7-15 minutes toward downtown Seattle. The trip from the airport to downtown Seattle takes about 35 minutes. You can then take a bus or a taxi from downtown Seattle to the UW. Taxis from SeaTac airport to the University District will cost ~$60.

 

Getting around Seattle

Seattle is easy to get around by bus. You can use google maps to locate a place you want to go, and see which bus line will take you there. You can download a free app, one bus away, that will give you the schedule for the next available bus. One-way tickets are $2.25-2.50 depending on the time of day, and you will need exact change for your ticket. Ask for a transfer ticket when you board to allow you to use same ticket for additional rides (valid for about 2 hours).
