Link Light Rail's escalators and elevator from Sea-Tac Station to International Boulevard are closed for major repairs until October. During this time, the stairs will remain open. For those with accessibility needs, Sound Transit will operate a shuttle between International Boulevard and 176th ST and the Courtesy Shuttle Loop on the Arrivals loop of the Airport at Door 8. For way finding help please see Sea-Tac Airport's interactive map. The shuttle will run every 15 minutes during operating hours (5 a.m. through 1:30 a.m.). Updates on this improvement project and other information will be posted on Sound Transit's Service Alerts.

Directions to Link light rail
The SeaTac / Airport Station is connected to the fourth floor of the airport parking garage. In order to access the garage from the terminal, passengers will have to use the skybridges and walk to the station. A Train-to-Plane shuttle from the terminal to the station is available free of charge that helps transport passengers who may have accessibility needs or excess luggage. This shuttle operates seven days a week from 5 a.m. to midnight from the Link light rail station to the center of the garage. Trains arrive and depart on the platform level of the station. The covered, level walkway to the airport terminal is one level down on the mezzanine. The well-lit walkway is separated from the main area of the garage and directional signs point the way to the main terminal skybridge. Wheelchair and other accessibility services are available at Sea-Tac.
