      Yup….an airport with roughly nil in the way of mass transit.

      They’ll fix that. Seattle is very good at the whole bus thing. A LOT of people use the public bus system – more than most cities in America.

      I would expect to see regular bus service from Paine to downtown, in the future

      The whole point of this airport is for passengers to avoid going downtown. And even if they want to add that service, the uncertainty of traffic on I-5 is enough that you’d still want to budget a ridiculous buffer if taking transit to/from Everett.

      In Seattle, we have Lyft/Uber now.

      PAE offers little over SEA for those coming to or from downtown Seattle. Maybe easier time clearing TSA. It is really for Bothell and communities North of it.

      If Seattle is your destination, this isn’t your airport. If points north are your home or destination, then it makes sense.

    The Seattle area is one where I’d still want to rent a car, unless going for business and staying relatively close to work, and not planning to go out of the area where I’m staying and working. If I’m there for leisure, there are too many great things outside the city that require a car for me to not rent one, and depend solely on public transit and taxis.

      Agreed. The one time we were there, the rental car was a must to go to all the tourist destinations in and around SEA.
