Seattle is bike-friendly! If you brought your own bike, check out the nearly 20-mile Burke-Gilman Trail that runs from Northeast to West along the west side of Lake Washington along the ship canal through the heart of Fremont. Didn’t bring your bike? Don’t worry. LimeBikes and Jump bikes are scattered all over the streets of Fremont. Download the apps and pick-up the closest bike. Cost for a non-electric LimeBike is $1 for 30 minutes. Electric Lime-Es and Jump bikes run $1 to unlock and $0.10/minute from there. Don’t forget to bring a helmet though, per Seattle law!
If you’re coming to Fremont from downtown, take bus routes 5, 26x, 28x, 40 or 62. Not sure where a bus stop is? Download One Bus Away and find stops, and schedules. There’s also Trip Planner for a more detailed schedule through King County Metro. Or let Chamber Member Google guide you with its transit options on Google Maps.
Traveling by car? Take Aurora Avenue north from downtown for the most direct route into Fremont. If you’re traveling via I5, Take exit 167 to Mercer Street west to Aurora Ave N and continue north to Fremont. Use the map provided for better directions into the Center of The Universe, or let Chamber Member Google, guide you with Google Maps.
Parking in Seattle can be tricky! We always recommend looking into public transportation but if you do choose to drive into Fremont, download the PayByPhone app and enter the five-digit number on the green sign and you’ll be set – cash free! If you pay with the meter, make sure to get your sticker and put it on the correct window! Parkopedia is also a great option for comparing lots to find the cheapest garages in Fremont.
