Transportation 101

Sound Transit’s Link light rail line runs from downtown Seattle to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac). Downtown stations are located in the Downtown Transit Tunnel at Westlake Center, the financial district, Pioneer Square and the International District. Exploring downtown is convenient and affordable thanks to Metro Transit’s Ride Free Area in the downtown core, which includes the 1.3-mile Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel. The tunnel begins at the Convention Place Station on Ninth Ave. and Pine St., and runs through the retail core, financial district, and Pioneer Square, ending in the International District.

South Lake Union Streetcar traverses the South Lake Union neighborhood through the Denny Triangle ending in the downtown core area. For a quick, inexpensive trip between downtown Seattle and the Seattle Center try the Seattle Center Monorail. Terminals are located on the upper level of Westlake Center and at the Seattle Center near the Space Needle.
