New stations make it easier than ever, for just about 3 bucks.
Haven’t taken Sound Transit’s Link light rail to the airport yet? New University of Washington and Capitol Hill stations make it easier than ever. From UW’s Husky Stadium, trains leave every 6 minutes between 6:27 and 9:03 a.m. weekdays. It’s 44 minutes to Sea-Tac Airport. Adult fare: $3.25, payable with a tap from your Orca card. On arrival, it’s an 8-minute trot to Alaska Airlines check-in. (Idea for Port of Seattle and Sound Transit: Add moving walkways.)
