On this big week for holiday travel, here's a comparison of your options for getting to Sea-Tac Airport, including some that are new this year.
Besides getting a friend or relative to take you for free, the cheapest way is to take a bus or light rail.
Sound Transit's Link Light Rail costs $3 per adult from downtown.
The trip takes 38 minutes, and you'll have to manage your bags.
Taxis have a flat $40 rate from downtown.
The Shuttle Express website quoted a ride on Wednesday from downtown to the airport for $33.
Uber prices vary based on demand.
Late Tuesday morning, Uber-X estimates from downtown began just under $26.
New this holiday season, car-share members with three companies can now drop off vehicles at the WallyPark garage near the airport and catch a shuttle.
Prices vary with travel time.
"We have a great option for getting to the airport," said Holly Hauser of BMW's ReachNow.
She estimated a trip costing about $16.
Car2Go is a little cheaper -- about $13 dollars for a very small car.
"It's a very convenient, fast and easy way to get to the airport," said Michael Hoitink of Car2Go.
Zipcar says a drive to the airport that takes 30 minutes or less will cost $5.
But sometimes, you just want to drive your own car.
The most convienent parking is the airport garage, which is running a special -- $130 for seven days.
"Look to the off-site lots and you'll probably save a lot of money," said analyst Bob Pishue, of the traffic data company INRIX.
"Travelers could save around $80 or $85 by parking at an off-site facility versus at the airport," Pishue said.
