To try yet another form of public transportation, a fun getaway is to take a water taxi (running weekday mornings and early evenings) from the downtown Seattle waterfront to West Seattle. From there, you can visit Alki Beach Park for a nice long walk with great views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. You can also make your way “up the hill” for a meal at Mashiko, Seattle’s first fully sustainable sushi bar. Free Metro DART shuttles run on weekday mornings and early evenings between local neighborhoods and the Water Taxi. Route 775 serves the Admiral District and Alki Beach Park. Route 773 will get you to the West Seattle Junction and Mashiko. This Route Map provides an overview of the shuttle routes.
