Tukwila International Blvd. is one of the two elevated
stations on the route. It became the temporary terminal when the line
opened in the summer of 2009. Free shuttle buses carried
passengers to and from the airport for approximately the next five
months, before the line was extended one further station south.
This is the only Link station that has a park-and-ride
lot, and it is not a huge one. The general lack of free parking is unusual for the
systems constructed in recent decades in this country, and has been
the cause of a fair degree of local criticism.
