University Shuttle Program

If you're traveling over winter break, the Department of Public Safety may be able to help facilitate your transportation.

Public Safety will be providing free shuttle rides from campus to the Capitol Hill Light Rail Station. From there, travelers can take a 45-minute train ride directly to SeaTac Airport.

Details:
  • There is no need to sign-up for rides in advance, simply arrive at the university seal (11th and Marion) any time during shuttle service hours
  • A university Nighthawk vehicle will be stationed there with a driver on-site (if there’s no vehicle present when you arrive, shuttle service is taking place, and a vehicle will return shortly; your wait time should be no longer than 15 minutes)
Passengers must be current university students, faculty, or staff, so be sure to have your campus ID with you when you arrive for a ride.  Present your ID to the driver and  board the vehicle.
