How to get to Pioneer Square from SeaTac International Airport

Our second transit post is targeted toward visitors who would like to easily access a coworking space while in Seattle.  Visitors can rent a conference room to meet with customers, prospects, or vendors, or use our flex space to get out of the hotel and get work done.  

The Pioneer Collective is ideally located for travelers flying into and out of Sea-Tac International Airport.  


1. Use Sound Transit's Central Link Light Rail Service:

  • Time: Around 45 minutes including walking distance and depending upon time of day train frequencies
  • Distance: Roughly 15 miles

Upon exiting Sea-Tac International Airport, follow signs to light rail service. You will need to buy a ticket to the International District stop, current rates are $2.75 one way. You may buy tickets using cash or credit card from the vending machine. If you have an ORCA card, you may use it and will need to tap your card before entering the platform and after getting off the train. Please note, both the International District stop and the Pioneer Square stop are close to our location, however we recommend the International District stop based upon the ease of the walk. At peak hours, trains come every 7.5 minutes.
