When we’re helping our happy homeowners find their next home-sweet-home, commute is always one of the TOP things people are concerned about. And let’s face it… Seattle traffic can get downright gnarly at times.
Now, while it might not be the mode of transit you use most often, we want to share the most exciting commuting option here, and that’s the airport at Paine Field in Everett.
First off, Paine Field is a short 8-minute drive from our latest South Everett listing—MUCH better than the 39 minutes during non-rush hour (which requires you take I-5 through Downtown Seattle, too…) to Seatac. Below we’ve included a map of everywhere you can fly direct out of Paine Field… and it’s pretty amazing. Jet off to vacation in Las Vegas, head to San Francisco and back in a day for a business meeting, or grab a connecting flight from Denver or LAX.
The South Everett/Lynnwood area is a popular suburb for those who are still looking for a reasonable commute into Seattle via car. Both Interstate-5 and Highway 99 (aka Aurora) offer access into the city making it easy to hop on either one and cruise on into Downtown Seattle or South Lake Union. (The express lane option makes it even easier as well!)
There are *several* Park & Ride options in Everett and the surround areas—check out a list of Everett Park & Rides here. Each Park & Ride location includes a list of the buses that stop there, so you can plan your trip accordingly.
