Sea-Tac Airport Offering Discount Parking For Weekend Sporting Events
The Port of Seattle announced this week that Sea-Tac Airport is expanding its half-price parking offer to include all weekend Mariner, Seahawk, Sounder and Husky game days to connect with Link Light Rail.
Here’s the rest from a press release:
The 50 percent discount applies to parking in Terminal Direct on Friday, Saturday and Sunday games at Qwest and Safeco Fields, and it begins with this weekend’s home opening series for the Seattle Mariners.
Terminal Direct parking at Sea-Tac Airport offers the most convenient access to the airport terminal and quick connection to Link Light Rail. You’ll park on the fourth floor of the airport garage, an easy walk to the pedestrian bridge leading to the SeaTac/Airport Station.
During 2011-12 Mariner, Seahawk, Sounder and University of Washington Husky football home games, customers parking in Terminal Direct will enjoy a $2 per hour rate, 50 percent off the regular rate. The discount period begins three hours before game time and is a way to avoid traffic congestion and the hassle of downtown parking. Discounted parking is available for up to eight hours and will automatically be credited at the special rate when you exit the airport parking garage. A minimum stay of three hours is required and you must park in Terminal Direct.
Catch Link Light Rail on the Terminal Direct parking level and travel to the Stadium or International District Stations, where you’re an easy walk to Qwest or Safeco Fields. The airport’s Terminal Direct parking is a perfect way to make the connection to Link Light Rail.
Again, the special parking rate is valid for all Mariner, Seahawk, Sounder and UW Husky football home games. The discount will apply if you arrive to park at Terminal Direct within three hours before game time and stay a minimum of three hours, up to a maximum of eight hours.
Fans riding Link to the game can skip any post-game ticket lines by purchasing a round-trip ticket ahead of time or by using an ORCA card from any ticket vending machine before boarding. The round- trip fare from SeaTac/Airport station on Link Light Rail to the Stadium Station is $5.
