Need cheapest and fastest transportation to the ferry

I'm flying up to visit my sister in Bremerton, and I didn't want her to hassle with driving around to pick me up, so I'm going to walk across on the ferry. Besides, I love the view on that ride. Anyway, what is the quickest and cheapest way to the Ferry dock? I know a taxi will cost me about $50 (if not more). I will only have a backpack and another carry-on. No big checked luggage. Thanks!

The quickest and cheapest are different. The quickest is a cab. The cheapest is using the Link Light Rail from the airport to the Pioneer Square station; get off and walk west toward the water. The ferry terminal is a few blocks north. The rail ride will be about ~37 minutes, then it's about a 10 minute walk.

you can arrange a flat rate taxi from

flatrateforhire.com

they have been quoting $25 from seatac to downtown but you must arrange in advance.

Agree that quickest and cheapest don't really go hand in hand. Train and walk is definitely the cheapest.

Thanks so much to both of you! I will be using the flat rate taxi for my trip back.

As above, fastest is a taxi. It will be right around $50 from SeaTac.

Cheapest is the LightRail, if you get off at the Pioneer Square station it's a pretty short walk down to the ferry.
