Getting Around Seattle

The bus system is reliable and quite affordable in Seattle. Fares vary for adults depending on whether you travel during peak-time (from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday) or non-peak hours. The City of Seattle counts as one “zone”, while all other areas outside the city and within King county are considered a second zone. It’s important to note that you pay your fare as you board the metro (when you’re traveling toward downtown Seattle) and then as you leave the metro (when you’re traveling away from downtown). If you’re staying downtown, you can ride free in certain zones, except between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Remember to use exact cash, as drivers don’t provide change. The $5 Metro Visitor Pass gives you one day of unlimited travel on all regular metro lines, except the South Transit routes (simply show the pass to the operator, don’t worry about swiping it or feeding it into the fare box).
