Getting to and from the Cascadia funtimes

Planes & Trains

Blaine is a beautiful departure from some of our larger Cascadian tech city centers. The closest airport is Bellingham International Airport.

If you are traveling by air, we recommend flying into Seattle's SeaTac airport, catching the light rail to the Intl District Station using the Link Light Rail, walking over to the Amtrak King Street Station and hopping the Hacker Train with your fellow Cascadian friends.

walk from Link Light Rail stop to Amtrak

Hacker Train tickets are still available! The Link connection to Hacker Train costs less than $3. Tickets are sold from a vending machine on the rail platform that accepts cash, Visa, or Mastercard.

If you're unable to make the Hacker Train departure, Amtrak provides a few options to getting you to your destination at Bellingham Amtrak Station(BEL).

Buses

In addition, bus service to and from Bellingham is available via either BoltBus or GreyHound.

If you travel to Bellingham by bus, you will need to arrange your own ride service from the bus station to Semiahmoo Resort.

While Bellingham and Blaine do not have an Uber presence, these cities do have plenty of well-recommended cab companies: Rommel's Taxis can be reached via phone at 1 (360) 510-1177 or Your Cab Company at 1 (360) 746-4943 and are usually very responsive.

Shuttle

As part of wanting to make sure all of our attendees make it to and from the events with as little stress as possible, we will be providing free shuttles to the Semiahmoo Resort to and from the Amtrak station as well as the listed alternative lodging.

Please make sure you RSVP for shuttle service in order for us to plan appropriately.
