Default Seattle to Vancover Train

I need some info on the train that goes from Seattle to Vancouver. We are flying to Seattle and want to take the train to Vancouver before we catch our cruise.
Thanks in advance for any and all info

Hi Ben,

The train is operated by AMTRAK. It departs Seattle 7:45am from the station downtown, arriving in Vancouver at 11:40am. It is the most beautiful ride, right along the water's edge in many places. I recommend it. It returns from Vancouver in the evening.

The adult fare is $34.00 one way.

They have bus service as well between the two cities.

Check with AMTRAK for more info. Their website is very helpful.
www.amtrak.com

Hope this helps.

Besides the train there is also Quick Shuttle - allow 4 hours as they make several stops.

Actually you can get the train even cheaper - $23 - depending on date and availability. You can check the prices on line. Kids prices are half price and they have AAA discounts. Go here for more info:

We flew into Seattle and rented 2 cars (there were 6 of us and tons of luggage) and drove the beautiful 3 hour drive ourselves. It was a really easy route. You can drop off National cars about 4 short blocks from the dock. We could have walked it had we known how close it was. Full size cars were about $100. total each. It saved us about $250. pp on airfare. We went the day before the cruise.

We could not co-ordinate train or shuttle or anything else but cars with airline arrival times. They all leave Seattle too early to catch. Train goes too early in A.M.

Quick Shuttle has pick up at the Seatac airport and at downtown hotels, makes serveral stops along the way.
