Seattle International Airport Train Transfers

The cities of Seattle and Tacoma are linked to Sea-Tac via Link Light Rail. From either end of the Baggage Claim area in Seattle Airport, the gate or ticketing level passengers can follow the signs to 'Link Light Rail Station'. Via the escalator at the north end of the terminal you can access the right level to cross skybridge and get to the Airport Parking Garage's fourth floor. From there, simply continue left on the covered walkway and follow signs about 1,200 feet to the Link Light Rail Station.

If you don't want to walk with your baggage, there's also a free train-to-plane shuttle. The shuttle runs from 5.00 am to midnight every day of the week, starting from the Link Light Rail Station for the center of the Parking Garage. If you are a wheelchair user or have other mobility issues, there are services that will help you to get around Sea-Tac.
