Below are directions by bike, bus, car, ferry and even private boat. Although these are to the classroom, many students go directly to the Safeway parking garage one short block north (on 54th) for easier parking.

Mapquest will almost certainly get you lost!

By Bus

Be aware many routes have changed or been eliminated on October 1, 2012
System Maps | Route Maps

The nearest stops are at 15th Ave NW and NW Market St (just around the corner from us).

From Downtown, catch the RapidRide Route D [schedule | map]

From the U-District & Montlake, take the 44 bus [schedule | map]

By Uber

Nicer than a cab and nearly the same price, we're rather charmed with the towncar service provided by Uber. One has to sign up, then we recommend getting the mobile app to summon the nearest car.

By Bicycle

You may wish to view this bicycling map of the approach to our building.

There are tricky spot in the area to note: the south end of the Ballard Bridge. Heck, it's a bridge with small sidewalks and no bicycling on the road surface. We're just a few blocks north of the Bridge. The Ballard Locks are a much more pleasant, if round-about approach:

From downtown, along the waterfront, and through the Ballard Locks.
