How can I take the Amtrak Cascades train back to Seattle?
If you’re looking to return to Seattle, rather than Redmond, you can hop aboard the train. Tickets are available at Amtrak Cascades.com for a comfortable trip back to Seattle, with stops in Everett and Edmonds. Free Wi-Fi, a well-stocked bistro, and lots of legroom make this a great return option. Buy your ticket at least two weeks in advance to save 25%. Ten onboard bike racks can be reserved for $5 each when you purchase your Amtrak Cascades ticket. Or, you can box your bike and check it as baggage for an additional fee.
