Seattle Tacoma Airport was constructed in 1944 after the U.S. military took over Boeing Field during World War II. In 2011, the airport served over 32.8 million passengers, making it the 17th-busiest airport in the United States. The top five busiest airlines at SeaTac in 2011 were Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines.
Unfortunately I flew in via American Airlines, one of the worst airlines in America. My plane out of Tampa was delayed by an hour, so they rebooked me on a later flight. The rebooked flight was also delayed by about 45 minutes due to maintenance, so I almost missed my connecting flight in Chicago. My flight from Chicago to Seattle was also delayed due to maintenance, so I arrived in Seattle about 5 hours later than I had originally planned. To top it off, it took more than an hour for my bags to get from the airplane to the baggage claim area. I hate American Airlines (last time I flew with them, they cancelled my flight from Miami to Tampa, forcing me to drive the 4 hours in the middle of the night to get home; they refused to pay a dime).

If you take the bus (#510, #511, #513) from 9th and Stewart going to Chinatown, then it is still within the free ride area zone. The ride is about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the traffic.
From Chinatown, you can take the buses mentioned above and bus #7, #36 on Jackson Street. And stop by Pike 3rd and Pike and just walk three blocks to Pike Place Market.
From Chinatown, you can also catch #510, #511 and #513 to go to Pike and stop by 5th and Pike and walk six blocks down to the Pike Place Market.
You can also catch the bus under the tunnerl- bus #106 and stop by University Street and walk down towards the water. It's about seven blocks.

Amtrak is awesome! I recommend buying your tickets online bc it is easier to select dates and times for your specific needs. This mannor of transport isn't utilized enough in Seattle. The station is located downtown with great access to the bus system. The round trip cost me $55 dollars and the trip was only 3 hours one way. The view is beautiful! And since it wasn't crowded at all, I recommend this to travelers. It is cheaper and less hassle than driving!

The streets of Seattle are biker-friendly. At least the city is trying to. You can link your bicycle trips with public transportation to go just about anywhere.
Riding your bike is convenient and great for your health. Not only that it is good for the environment, it is far less expensive than driving a car.
In Seattle, you can take your bike along with your on your bus, train, vanpool or ferry.
Use a Bike+Ride Station to access convenient services.
Ride to a nearby Park & Ride lot, and store your bike at a secure locker.
All the public transit buses serving the Seattle area are equipped with bicycle racks, and racks can be installed on most vanpools upon request. Trains and ferries provide designated bicycle parking areas.

There is a bike path in Alki Point which is very safe and very nice. The view while you are biking is outstanding! The bike path is overlooking the Puget Sound.
At the Waterfront, you can also bike. However, you will deal with a lot of visitors visiting Seattle! Avoid the summer time biking at the Waterfront because that's the time a lot of big cruiselines (big ship cities) come to Seattle.
There are many bike paths around Seattle. There is one from Everett all the way to Seattle!

Seattle has improved all the walkways and streets that these are accessible by wheelchairs and strollers. This is true close to the Waterfront. I see a lot of local residents come to the Waterfront and they bring their strollers.
However, because Seattle has downhill and uphill, having the strollers downtown might be a challenge. Sometimes the climb is 45 degrees that's why.
Also, some streets have flashing lights and sounds for people with disability.

This pedicab driver requested that I should email him his picture when I requested that I take this picture. He takes tourists to and fro at the Waterfront. There is not a lot of this drivers around the waterfront. The Seattle Waterfront goes from the Bainbridge Island Ferry terminal to the different Piers like the Pier 57 where the Argossy Cruises are or to the ferry boat that goes to Victoria, Canada. At the Waterfront, you will see the Seattle's Aquarium and the Water Park and mostly an array of Seattle souvenir shops and restaurants. There is also a food court close to the waterfront.
