Here are some directions for visiting the Department by bus. Also see King County Metro Online for schedules, maps, and a trip planner (which actually works!) and and CSE's own OneBusAway program for real-time transit arrival information.
Find the nearest entrance to the bus tunnel. Take a 71, 72, or 73 express bus from any tunnel station. (There will be one of these every ten minutes most times of day.) The fare is $2.00 ($2.25 peak hours); pay (exact change required) when you exit. (Fares do change; check this page for the most up-to-date fare information.) When you get near UW, the bus will go down NE Campus Parkway, passing 11th Street, 12th Street, then Brooklyn Ave. Get off just after Brooklyn Avenue. (If the bus turns up University Avenue, you went a little too far; just get off at the next stop.) Continue east on NE Campus Parkway, crossing to the left-hand side of the street, and take the pedestrian bridge over 15th Avenue by the Henry Art Gallery. Continue walking through the campus roughly southeast to the Allen Center. The Allen Center is located southeast of Drumheller Fountain, behind the Electrical Engineering Building. (Map with Allen Center marked.)
To and from SeaTac Airport, use the "Link" light rail service, which terminates at the south end at SeaTac and at the north in the downtown bus tunnel Read about it here. Transfer to/from the 71, 72, or 73.
There are also various Gray Line, Shuttle Express, and other busses serving the airport. Gray Line will take you to various downtown hotels; Shuttle Express will take you to the door at UW or anywhere else (probably after meandering around dropping off other people).
Go to the International District bus tunnel station (about a block). To get there, take the pedestrian bridge that goes over the tracks (heading east, away from the waterfront). Go by Union Station (a former train station, now offices), and continue east to the bus tunnel station (or, when closed, to a stop on 3rd). Proceed as above.
Try the Metro Trip Planner, or see the University District Bus Routes page. If you find a bus that goes onto the campus, get off at the HUB bus stop; this is very close to the Allen Center.
A couple of relevant routes from the East Side are 242 and 545 ST Express from around Microsoft and Overlake, and 271 from Bellevue Transit Center. For the 242 and 545 ST Express you have to get off at the Montlake Station and walk to campus (ten minutes), or transfer to a local bus going to campus. The 271 goes on 15th Ave, bordering the campus.
