Our buses and trains are fully accessible
Seniors (65 and older) and people with disabilities ride at a reduced rate using a Regional Reduced Fare Permit.
When boarding the bus, show your reduced fare permit to the driver. On the train, show your reduced fare permit to the conductor when asked.
Your personal care attendant can ride for free, but must board and leave with you.
Designated seating for senior citizens or riders with disabilities is available on all Sound Transit trains and buses.
Signs and other design features will help you get to and from stations and show you how to use our trains and buses. We use innovative communication tools, including art and pathways, that can guide you by sight, feel, touch or voice.
If you need help between SeaTac/Airport Station and the terminal, call Huntleigh USA 206-396-5275 four to six hours before your arrival to reserve a wheelchair or golf cart. If you have an early morning flight, call the night before. Let the dispatcher know what time to meet you, your airline and flight number, and the number of bags.
Paratransit rides (usually vans) are available for eligible people who are unable to use or connect to our buses and trains
