Accessible Transportation to and From the Airport

Curb cut on airport drivePersonal Vehicle Drop-Off

Loading areas are marked with blue signs and located along the drives. The curbs along the upper and lower drives at SEA for departures and arrivals are being updated to meet current code requirements for accessibility, both by creating curb cuts or eliminating the curb altogether. More information on accessible parking

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


Public Transit

Taxi wheelchair loading zone on airport drive

Taxi and flat rate vehicle services to and from the airport offer wheelchair accessible vans. SEA will soon expand the fleet to include five additional wheelchair accessible vehicles. Taxis drop off on the departures level, or a location most convenient for the passenger.

Taxis depart from the third-floor parking garage. Passengers in a wheelchair or with limited mobility may request curbside pick-up on the arrivals level by Doors 10 and 22. Please state clearly to your taxi service provider that you require mobility assistance to ensure they meet you by one of these doors.


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.

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 12:00AM.

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.
