We’re the best value, direct to downtown.  Starting as low as $30.16 per person. Downtown Airporter is an affordable choice for families, too―kids 2 and under ride free, one for each paying adult.

Service operates between Sea-Tac Airport and the following Seattle hotels: Crowne Plaza, Fairmont Olympic, Grand Hyatt, Hilton, Renaissance, Sheraton, Warwick and Westin.

The drivers and the service from Shuttle Express was top notch. You guys were reliable, friendly, easy to work with. I will definitely recommend you to my colleagues at Microsoft and you will also be the first folks I call when I have another event.

I’m very impressed with our latest ride from Kirkland to the airport. Steve was on time, was very polite (offered his arm to my wife to help her dismount the van) and of course got us to the airport in plenty of time.

It was great!  The driver dropped us off right there and was close by to pick us up afterwards. Got back to the hotel pretty quickly too…Bus was comfortable.
