Best Affordable Airport Transfers

Sea-Tac -Seattle - The Link

Brian Schwartz

Seattle

Best Taxi Alternative: The Link, the nation’s newest light-rail airport-to-city service.

Fare: $2.50.

Time to Downtown: 32 minutes to Pioneer Square.

Drawback: Almost twice the travel time as a taxi ride. The transfer to the train is a 5–10 minute walk on a covered sidewalk and over a sky bridge.

Taxi Facts: $40 average metered fare for the 15-mile, 20-minute ride.

Bottom Line: With 11 stops to choose from en route to the terminus at Westlake Center, the Link is a sure bet for most travelers. The ride may be a bit longer than a taxi trip, but you’ll save about $75 round-trip.
