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 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. The train leaves Bellingham’s Fairhaven Station at 7:37 p.m. and arrives at King Street Station in Seattle at 10:00 p.m.
