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.
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.
