But as traffic congestion gets worse and worse in the Seattle area I expect the rail alternative will look better in relative terms.
I have to agree with this. I stopped taking it because it really is kind of a hassle unless you live right downtown. I have found it takes about 40 minutes+, especially when you figure in the wait time for it. I prefer to just park at the airport and take a shuttle. Bear is right though, as traffic gets worse, it will be a better option. When it opens in Northgate I will probably give it a shot again, as I will not have to wait for a bus, transfer, etc.
