Seattle University Department of Public Safety and Transportation offers a FREE shuttle service to SeaTac Airport during various times throughout the academic year. Hours of operation are generally between the hours of 5am to 8pm, and run during the last few days of finals week each quarter, in addition to Thanksgiving Break. Students can expect to receive email correspondence regarding specific service and sign-up times two to three weeks before finals.
Shuttle sign-ups take place in the Public Safety office located in the University Services Building (across from the bookstore) about two weeks before Finals. Students will need to bring their student ID cards, know their student ID number, and their flight departure time. There is generally a 1 luggage maximum per student, not including small bags that can travel in your lap.
We also offer a return shuttle service from Sound Transit's Link Light Rail International District Station back to campus. This service is generally offered the Saturday, Sunday and returning Monday after break. Students just need to call our office upon boarding the Link Light Rail from the Airport, and a driver will meet them at the International District Station on 5th & S. Jackson St for pick up. Specific times, dates and instruction is sent out to students approximately two weeks before the break. Specify your return time here.
In the event that none of our scheduled shuttle times work for you, there are several other easy ways to travel to the SeaTac Airport. Including the following:
