Getting from Airport to the Seattle and nearby cities

  • Taxi and Limousines are the best way to get from airport to any suburbs that you are trying to get to. Taxi fare can range from $20-$100 depending on how far are you going. It is advisable to contact one of the advertisers listed here because you are likely to get a better rate. Feel free to mention SeattleIndian
