Transportation in Seattle


Taxis with friendly, reliable drivers can be hailed from in front of hotels, the airport or by telephone. It is possible to hail them on the street Downtown, but in residential areas you are better off using a taxi rank or telephone.


Navigating Seattle by foot is only for the hale and hearty. East-west streets are often very steep, which may account for the high fitness levels of many locals.


Seattle's excellent bus system makes navigating the city a breeze. All buses provide wheelchair and bicycle lifts plus helpful drivers who cheerfully announce significant stops and give directions.

Rent your car

Two freeways and a major highway run north-south along the west and east coast of Seattle’s Lake Washington, connecting most parts of the city. Express lanes are reversed from morning to evening peak-time, to relieve congestion. Parking is organised on a three-tiered pricing system from downtown to the outskirts.

Transportation tips

The Regional Day Pass, providing unlimited daily travel on all regular Metro services, is available on weekends and holidays. It is easy to get around by car, but parking is pricey.

Bus trips are free between 6am and 7pm daily in Downtown Seattle. The Ride Free Area (RFA) extends from Battery Street in the north to South Jackson Street in the south, and from 6th Avenue in the east to the Waterfront in the west. Routes 116, 118 and 119 are not included in the Ride Free area.
