The Seattle Center Monorail is the fastest way to travel between downtown and Seattle Center. Monorail Platform locations are at downtown’s Westlake Center (5th Avenue and Pine Street) and at Seattle Center (adjacent to Space Needle and Experience Music Project). The train departs approximately every 10 minutes – the trip takes about two minutes. Visit for rates, rider alerts and hours.

Transportation from the Sea-Tac Airport: 

If you plan on flying into Seattle for NFFTY 2016, we recommend you use the Century Link Light Rail or other public transportation to travel from SeaTac Airport to your hotel. The Light Rail is connected to the airport and costs under $3 per trip. If you’re staying at the Maxwell Hotel or Hotel 5, you’ll want to ride the Light Rail all the way to the last stop and take a hotel shuttle, a cab/Uber, or the bus to your hotel. If you are 18 or younger and plan on traveling alone to the festival, we can help you find alternate transportation solutions, just email Todd Kaumans at
