Get a daily Orca card at the entrance and tap in and out on any number of trips per day. Reload for the next time you use it. Only draw back was that escalators are one way (up), no elevators, and the stairs are long....More

Where else can one travel from the airport to downtown for $3.75?! Clean and easy to use. However, if you are alone and hoping to take it from downtown to the airport early morning (5:00 am), I wouldn't. There is a sketchy element not in...More

O.k., it's your first visit to Seattle, you're headed to the city, you hate public transportation, so you'll just do Uber or Lyft for $30+. Well scrap all that, take the short walk to the light rail, buy your ticket very easily from the machine...More
