Travel to the University of Washington
The University of Washington campus is 643 acres in north-central Seattle, bordering on Lake Washington. There are several ways to get to the UW campus from the airport. Many people use Shuttle Express, a van service that transports 5-9 people and may be scheduled in advance, online http://www.shuttleexpress.com/index.html. The current price (February 2007) is $21 per person to the University of Washington. Some travelers choose to take a taxi ($35-$45) or a limousine (also $35-$45). Both services are controlled by the airport authorities and may be reached as follows after arriving at SeaTac:
This service is available on the third floor of the Airport Parking Garage. Sedans, station wagons and large vans are available.
Call (206) 246-9999 in advance, or use the curbside phones on Baggage Claim Level, after arrival.
Stationed at the Airport, this service picks up passengers on the third floor of the Parking Garage.
To arrange for
a limousine, call (206) 431-5904 in advance, or after arrival, use
curbside phones, or go to the Ground Transportation Booth, on the
third floor of the Parking Garage.
Travelers may also want to rent a car, although if you plan to stay on campus, parking is a problem. Both conference hotels offer free parking, however.
There are nine rental car companies that have information counters in the Baggage Claim area, and five have car pick-up and drop-off at the airport on the first floor of the garage across from the Main Terminal. In addition, off-airport rental car companies provide courtesy van service to the airport. Rental car agencies at SeaTac include
