Seattle’s public transportation system is one of the most extensive in the country, which is a boon for the budget minded tourist. King County Metro and Sound Transit both offer you the ability to plan your trip, locate your route, schedule, or bus stop; and to track your bus online. Trip itineraries can be planned before your arrive!
An excellent way to use the system becomes apparent the moment you step off the plane. Sound Transit’s Light Rail system delivers you from Seatac Airport into the heart of downtown Seattle in about 45 minutes for a tenth of what a taxi or shuttle would cost.
Within blocks of the Seattle Oasis Vacation condos, buses stop that will take you to Woodland Park Zoo, The Museum of Flight, Lake Washington, Capitol Hill, Alki Beaach, the International District, Bellevue, and regional malls such as Northgate or Westfield Southcenter.
There are even APPs for access to real-time transit information. Go to http://metro.kingcounty.gov/ and click on Regional Trip Planner or call 206.553.3000 for assistance in planning your trip on Seattle’s bus system.
