Transit Options

Pioneer Square is the hub of all transit in Seattle. It’s just steps from the Washington State Ferry and Water Taxi Terminal, Amtrak, major Metro routes, has a Link Light Rail stop, and if you’ve got a skateboard you can bomb down Yesler (WEAR YOUR HELMET!) straight into the Fest. It’s a serious planes, trains and automobiles situation.
