So .. I thought as I arrived back at Seattle-Tacoma airport on Monday : taxi or train? Train is officially called ‘Central Link Light Rail’ (airport to downtown), and then I have to take the No 10 Bus from downtown to Capitol Hill to the closest stop two blocks from my house. Since my luggage was manageable, and I wanted to see how it works out, I took the train.
Here is a comparison :
Would I do it again? Hmm, yes – if I don’t have a ton of luggage for an overseas trip, and I have the time!
