Is the Regional Day Pass a good value?
It could be depending on how much you’ll use public transportation.
If you’re staying near the airport and go to downtown Seattle for dinner, a round-trip on the Central Link light rail is $5.50.
If that’s the only public transportation you’re using for the day, it doesn’t make sense to buy a day pass. But if you’re going sightseeing and want to explore areas outside of downtown Seattle, buying a day pass could be worth it.
