By Uber

We like the service provided by Uber. One has to sign up (you'll get a credit!), then get 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.
