Seattle transportation

We will be staying at the Inn at the Market, and need to know the best way to get there from the airport. We will not be renting a car. We will be taking the ferry to Friday Harbor the next day. Do we need advance tickets, or can we just walk on? Thanks for any advice!

You can take LightRail for $2.75 per person, then walk about 6 blocks to your hotel if you don't have huge luggage.

You can take a shared shuttle, like Shuttle Express.

You can take a taxi or towncar which will be around $50.

I assume that you are taking the Clipper catamaran from Seattle to Friday Harbor and I'm sure that you will need advance tickets. It is not a Washington State Ferry. These ferries do not run from Seattle to Friday Harbor.

actually if you take the Stila towncars stationed at Seatac the rate is a flat $45. See on top right How to get into downtown Seattle for more info.

Thanks for posting the transport info.

Does the referral code also give you $30 in credit? If it does, please also be transparent with this info.

Yes, I get a free ride if someone decides to sign up with that code, which is what they get too.

However, another code that actually might be better, now that I am looking further at this is FREERIDE30. That one appears to be slightly different. I thought that they functioned the same, but I think that this one provides $30 in credit, while the previous one provides a free ride up to $30. I would edit the previous post, but that is no longer an option.

Which I have already done, actually. However, if I didn't find the better code, I would have left it as it was. Uber is pretty much the best solution and with a code it also is free for the first ride. That would make their one way transfer both painless and without cost. I don't see the harm in providing a referral in this context, since it would be my recommendation with or without the code.
