Seatac bike Parking?

I'm from Vancouver and I'm going to book a flight to NYC out of Seattle, April 02-08. (jetblue has some deals! $299 tax in return!)

Is there any free parking there or nearby for motorcycles?

Any tips would be great!

thanks!

Seatac Bike Parking

I live about 5 miles from Seatac. I'm willing to store your bike in my garage. I don't know of any safe free parking near the airport.

you could call one of the local airport parking lots and see what kind of rates
they'd give you. when I park & fly, I've had good results with

Doug Fox Parking http://www.dougfoxparking.com/

and


Airstar/ShuttlePark http://www.shuttlepark.com/

Both real close, and of course it helps that my wife works there

I was gonna' say - there AIN'T no safe bike parking at/near the airport, but Steven just nailed it with that one. WTG dude!

OK inside information here, and it's not technically "right". Yes, there is designated free motorcycle parking for employees on the 3rd floor of the parking garage (It is limited).

You enter on the arrivals level just past the rental car return - where the hotel/shuttle buses and taxi's enter the parking garage. Ride all the way through the floor until you see the end of the island past the yellow-elevator bank.

Good luck and this is ADVrider only information.


(P.S. I say not technically correct because they do require the employee to submit their license plate number for varification but It's not something they would regularly check)

I can probably be talked in to driving him to/from the airport depending on the arrival and departure times.

I live about 1.5 miles from the airport and have a garage. You're welcome to keep your bike here. If you let me take your bike for a test spin I may even drive you to the airport ;)

Cheers

So if I leave my bike in that parking (I know exactly where you mean) do you think I will get towed? I didn't realize that was only for employees. I am headed to NYC for 3 days.

No, not likely, you might get a note, but I haven't seen that either. I doubt very much anyone is taking notice of that particular area, and I doubt that everyone that parks there has taken the time to register their plate with the office.

Obviously if it became an overly used area, and sometimes it has been to capacity, then maybe they would warn people to register so they could control things.

You can park against the wall opposite the triangle as well, back in and nobody is taking notes...

Let me know PM what dates, and I'll keep an eye on your bike.

Is this still a viable option? I might be giving it a try.

SeaTac bike parking

I just moved from San Diego to the PNW and am working out travel issues. I have to go back to work for a few days and was thinking of riding the MC to the airport instead of dealing with the ferries in a car.

Just tripped over this thread looking for parking at SeaTac. Been researching and everyone charges the same rate for a MC as a car at SeaTac as far as I can see.... Shuttle Park and Doug Fox and the airport itself. When I asked "why", dude said it was because they take up the same space as a car. I asked him what the heck type of bike he rode and he stammered.... uhhh....

Are these offers of garages still out there? I can reciprocate... I live on Orcas Island and if anyone wants to park their bike and their body here for a few days I have plenty of room for ADV Peeps!

Cheers,

G-

Any updates of this situation? I'm in town at the midway portion of a 45 day trip and I am meeting some friends at the airport, renting a car and doing a labor day weekend concert at the Gorge. Because of tight timelines I need to be close to the airport/hertz but I am struggling to find anything affordable and safe.
