Accessible Transportation to and From the Airport

Personal Vehicle Drop-Off

Loading areas are marked with blue signs and located along the drives. The signs indicate the locations of curb cuts. More information on accessible parking

Please contact Prospect Airport Services at (206) 246-1550 upon your arrival to arrange wheelchair assistance.

Public Transit

Many of the scheduled public transit buses on airport routes are lift-equipped. Please contact Metro, Sound Transit or the Ground Transportation Booth for further information.

Taxis that provide services both to and from the airport offer wheelchair accessible vans. Taxis drop off on the arrivals/baggage level of the main terminal, and depart from the airport from the 3rd floor parking garage.

The airport is also served by Link Light Rail. Free shuttle service is provided between the SeaTac/Airport station and the airport terminal.

On arrival at the Light Rail station, take the elevator or escalator down from the platform to the mezzanine level. Shuttles load near the entrance to the skybridge to the main terminal, and operate continuously between 5:00AM and midnight.

Rental Cars

Rental car companies rent vehicles equipped with hand controls at no additional charge. To ensure availability of these cars, be sure to make advance reservations.

Airporter/Hotel Shuttles

Contact your ground transportation provider directly for information on available lift-equipped van service. Many hotels also have courtesy van shuttles that can pick up on the baggage claim level (lower drive) for individuals with disabilities; for more information, contact your hotel.

Curbside Services

Some airlines do offer curbside check-in during peak periods. Travelers should check directly with their carrier about check-in services. There is no parking or waiting allowed on the airport drives. Vehicles left unattended, even if the driver is nearby, will be ticketed and towed. A good alternative to loading and unloading on the drives is to use the Airport Garage.
