Central Link light rail travels between Sea-Tac Airport and Westlake Station in downtown Seattle, just blocks away from The Conference Center at the Washington State Convention Center, where SIC will be held. Link trains run every 7.5-15 minutes, depending on the time of day. Total trip time is usually 50 minutes from Airport to Downtown. Service is available from 5 am to 1 am Monday - Saturday. Adult fares range from $2.00 to $2.75 depending on the distance of your trip. More info at Sound Transit.

Taxi stands are located on the 3rd level of the parking garage at the airport. If you need to call a cab from your hotel to The Conference Center we recommend Seattle Yellow Cab: 206-622-6500.

Towncar services can be arranged in advance.

Amtrak or the Bolt Bus both service Seattle directly. Schedules, costs, and times vary depending on your departure dates and locations. Most of our Portland attendees prefer to take Amtrak Cascades. The train will drop you at the King Street Station where you can hop a quick cab into downtown or walk up to the Pioneer Square Lightrail Station (3rd Ave / James St), which is just a few stops to Westlake Center Station (Downtown Seattle, near the SIC venue).
