Carpooling & Vanpooling

Experience the comfort and savings of sharing rides to SEA Airport. Work with your employer, friends, and RideshareOnline to create or find carpools and vanpools.

With two or more passengers in the vehicle, you become eligible to use HOV and HOT lanes, which are designed to help you reach your destination faster. It's a smart way to make your travel time more efficient.

To find out more about how to park at the airport, visit SEA Airport’s Employee Parking website. There, you can find out how to sign up for a parking pass, rates and more.

If you don’t have your own vehicle to use, vanpool may be for you. Vanpooling is a shared commuting solution where individuals travel to work together in a van. King County Metro provides vanpool services, offering cost-effective travel with benefits like HOV lane access and shared expenses. This way, you can cut down on costs while enjoying a convenient and efficient daily commute.

Vanpools may be eligible for lower cost parking fees through the Port of Seattle’s Airport Employee Parking program. Visit the Employee Parking website to learn more.

Registered vanpools are eligible for $50 parking at SEA Airport’s Main Terminal garage.

At Park and Rides, you can find bus and train routes that take you to the airport, saving you the hassle and cost of parking at SeaTac. It’s also a great spot for meeting your carpool. The possibilities are endless!
