Getting Around Seattle

Once you’ve made it to your hotel in downtown Seattle, you have a few options for getting around to visit the sights, depending on your needs and preferences. Please take some time to review this information if you are planning to do some sightseeing. Information will also be at the hospitality booth.

City Buses/Ferries

For all the routes, stop information, and fares, see the King County Metro website.

All bus riders should plan to download One Bus Away and the Trip Planner app. One Bus Away lets you know where a bus is near you as well as when a particular bus is to arrive. Trip Planner helps you plan when and which bus to take and where to get off when you have a destination in mind. Learn more about riding the bus.

Metro Transit guides for buses, light rail, and ferries are available on the first floor of the Convention Center. Also, Google Maps’ Directions feature does an excellent job of finding transportation at your point of need.


Current Hours:

Monday-Friday: 7:30am-11pm

Saturday-Sunday: 8:30am-11pm

One-way prices (as of  May 1):

$2.50 for Adults

$1.25 for Youth ages 5-12

(Only cash payment accepted, do not need exact change)


Car Rentals:

Zipcar vehicles can be rented by the hour and Car2Go can be rented by the minute.

Some other car rental options are:

Enterprise at 1601 3rd Ave., 206-382-1051

Avis at 1919 5th Ave., 206-448-1700

National at 1601 3rd Ave., 888-826-6890

Seattle Visitor’s Bureau provides everything you want to know about getting around Seattle.
