Trains are cheap and clean, and are a good way to get from Sea-Tac Airport to downtown with a minimum amount of fuss.

Not yet an extensive network, but, clean, well-lighted, and safe. If it's on your route, it is by far, the best way to get there.

If you live in NY, this is like our LIRR but cheaper! $3.00 for a one way ticket! It stops at the SeaTac airport and it is more cheaper than taking a uber to where you need to go! It is also clean!

Easy and cheap transportation from Seatac airport to downtown Seattle. $3 each person one way. 40 minute trip. Trains run every few minutes, so you don't wait long. Some room for luggage, but at busy times limited. Safe to travel early in the morning.

$3.50 to go from Pioneer Square in downtown Seattle to Sea-Tac Airport? On a clean, quiet comfortable train? Sounds too good to be true but it isn’t. This is a fact. Train drops you within easy walking distance of airport terminals. It stops at both...More

No problem. There is space in each carriage for large luggage. Easy to get a cab from Westlake Centre though there is no taxi rank nearby, I think. However you will find lots of cabs looking for business. Good luck.
