We make it easy to ride to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, park, and disassemble or assemble your bike.​

Getting to and from the Airport

SEA is centrally located about 13 miles from downtown Seattle and 31 miles from downtown Tacoma.

  • Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail connects to Seattle and allows bikes on board.
  • King County Metro bus service also allows bikes on board and connects to Seattle and a variety of locations in the Seattle metro area.
  • If you’re biking to or from the airport, there are two ways to access the airport on a bike:
    • The north access point is via a pedestrian bridge that connects to the SEA Airport Link light rail station. To access this location from street level, take the elevator northeast of the intersection of Pacific Highway South and South 176th St. To get from the airport to street level, follow the signs for Link Light Rail, then use the walkway from the airport parking garage to the Link light rail station. The pedestrian bridge connects to the mezzanine level of the light rail station. Keep in mind that you don't need to pay a fare to use the light rail station pedestrian bridge and the bridge is closed from midnight to 4 a.m.
    • The south access point is at the intersection of Pacific Highway South and South 182nd St. From Pacific Highway South, travel towards the airport from 182nd St, pass the rental car shuttle, and enter through door 4. You will find the bike racks near the door. You can use our interactive map to navigate around the airport and locate all our bike racks.
