A new tradition started back in 2009, when Seafair started having free shuttle buses between Columbia City Station and the entrance to the paid viewing area for the hydroplane races at Genesee Park, which also happens to be a great place to simultaneously watch the Blue Angels airshow.
The hydroplane races and airshow take place this Friday through Sunday. The free shuttle buses will run from 7 am to 6 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
You can also now ride King County Metro route 50 from West Seattle all the way to Genesee Park. Route 50 connects to Link at Othello Station, Columbia City Station, and SODO Station. If you miss the last shuttle bus, just take route 50 back to Link, in either direction.
Past Link Excuses of the Week are here.
