Airport Parking is a Challenge

Why is parking so congested? Demand is up and supply is down. More customers are driving private vehicles than choosing ride share or public transit. Pandemic-related closures reduced the number of parking stalls in the area outside the airport while a garage improvement project and a recent fire has led to temporary reductions at the SEA garage. Shuttle bus driver shortages also continue to impact the availability of off-site parking options for airport employees.

Alternate ways to get to SEA is encouraged such as using rideshares, Link light rail, and public transit. Just like other areas in the region, once inside the airport, staffing challenges are affecting services from checkpoints to concessions, and airlines. Please factor in more time.

ETC recommends making a parking reservation at one of the off-airport location.
