Some people might have the impression that West Seattle is “too far away,” but with so many great transit options you can still easily zip around the city from here! West Seattle has a myriad of bus lines, and those who need to utilize the bus to commute for work will likely find the RapidRide C Line most useful. This line has several stops throughout West Seattle and and goes straight into the heart of Downtown Seattle and South Lake Union. You can also take a water taxi straight into Downtown Seattle if that’s more your style!
For those who love to jet off to far away vacations or just need to travel frequently for work, West Seattle is a *prime* choice—you’re just about a 15-18 minute drive (depending where in West Seattle you live) right to the airport. The Fauntleroy Terminal is in West Seattle, and from here you can head on a weekend getaway to Vashon Island or hop on over to Southworth, making it easy to access places like Port Orchard, Bremerton, etc.
Plus, Light Rail is coming to town with 5 added stations between the Stadiums and Alaska Junction (coming in 2030!).
