Hi guys , i'm gonna make a trip up to Seattle, staying in Tacoma, but driving into Seattle or bus into the city. My wallet is still sore from paying to park near tourist areas when i went last year. If you have a sweet spot where you wont get a ticket all day long, I'm all ears.
If you have links for bus schedules or Seattle Sounder something like that, I'd be grateful.
I'm not going to WSIKF this year so Seattles gonna be the focus.
See you at Berkeley tho!

Here's one option... try parking your car in Wallingford or Fremont then take the bus into downtown.  Bus ride in is about 10 to 15 minutes.  Also when you do park in a hood, check to see if the street has any "zone number" marked on a post.  It's basically for residents for all day parking and by the hour(s) for non.

Seattle Center Parking (right near the needle) is $7 for the day in the garage (intersection is 1st and John, I think - near Belltown). 

A bit north of downtown, but lots of buses to get you around from there.  You can also readily walk to the market or downtown from there if you are not in a hurry - just head toward the bay.  As far as I know, there is no decent spot to fly right near there, but Gas Works is close by car.

There is some free parking downtown, but its filled up fast.  Since the city put the new meters in a few years ago, most spots are pay by the hour even on the street.

So most hoods will have "permit" parking and timed for Calif. plates like myself?
Wow I thought SF was bad. I could try to come early for free spots, but thanks for the info on the number signs.
ORCA pass. It says u load the card with cash and it knows how to dock ur acct. Any yous guys use it? It'll work on ferries and rail but by reading it i'm not sure how it knows how much to collect. Interesting.
A monthly fastpass inSF was 30$ in the 90's but was made of paper, my how times change
