Using a PC browser, not a phone, open this forum page. Over on the right you'll see a page called "How do I get to Vancouver BC" which is a good start.

A couple options here. Go via Amtrak (Cascades line, it's called), or check out the Quick Shuttle service. Huge luxury bus, with reasonable rates.

Quick Shuttle is the slowest however ieaves from Seatac which makes it logistically easy. For bus options I like


train but bus is direct with no stops


These both leave from close to each other and easy to get to from seatac via light rail. Read how to get to Amtrak from seatac

Normally, i would say "Catch the train", but you're arriving mid-day, so unless you want to wait a few hours..... (train leaves Seattle at 7:40 a.m. & 6:50 p.m. to go into Canada)

SeaTac airport is about 20 minutes or so south of Downtown Seattle.

But, it might be fun to 'play tourist' in downtown Seattle, before heading into Canada.

so, with that in mind.......

1) I suggest catching the light rail from the SeaTac airport right into downtown Seattle

(get off at the "International District" station & walk up to street level)

2) Look for the big clock tower - that's the Amtrak station. Drop off your bags at the train station and then enjoy Seattle for a few hours.

3) At 6:50 p.m., hop on train (make sure you have prior reservations, of course), and arrive in Vancouver at 10:50 p.m.
