Air Travel

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), or Sea-Tac, is the main international airport serving western Washington. Sea-Tac Airport is located approximately 13 miles south of downtown Seattle, along the I-5 corridor, and is about a 30-minute drive. It can be reached via LINK rail, car, Shuttle Express, taxi, or bus.

Public Transit

All Conference venues and the Conference hotel will be within walking distance of one another.
Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail extends from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) to the University of Washington. With stops in South Seattle neighborhoods, the stadium district, the International District/Chinatown and downtown locations, it’s a great option for travelers coming to or from the airport.
Visit the Metro website for a complete guide to Seattle's transit system and a map of nearby bus stops.
