    There's no subway, but the Seattle bus system (King County Metro Transit) is very good. There are many routes that crisscross the city and go into the suburbs. In the downtown core, there's a "ride free" zone. Outside that zone, the fares range from around $2.50 to $3.50, depending on the length of the trip. There are no tokens. You can use cash, but you must have exact change. Or you can purchase bus tickets (in booklets) at pharmacies around town. If you'll be there only a few days, you're better off using cash. I've lived in Seattle for 6 years, and I use buses every day, to commute to/from work and for recreation, shopping, etc. I hardly ever drive my car. Also, Seattle is very walkable within the city limits. And there's a light rail that runs between the airport and downtown which is quite a bargain. over 9 years ago
