Light Rail Now Reaches the Go Center!
The Seattle Go Center is now a mere 5-10 minute walk from the U District Light Rail Station. Simply exit on Brooklyn & 45th, head north on Brooklyn, and then head west on NE 45th Ave. It is now possible to take Light Rail from SeaTac airport to the Go Center without transferring.
For Cars From Downtown Seattle, take I-5 North, go over the Ship Canal on a high bridge, and then exit for 45th Street (Exit 169). Keep to the right side of the exit. As you approach the traffic light, select the left lane. Go straight across 45th when the light allows. Turn right into the parking lot, about 60 ft. from the corner.
For Cars From North Seattle, drive south on I-5, and then exit for 45th Street (Exit 169). Turn left at 45th St and go over the I-5 bridge. Get in the left lane, and take a left on 7th Ave. NE, just after the bridge. As you turn onto 7th Ave, keep to the right lane of 7th. Turn right into the parking lot, about 60 ft. from the corner. (The north entrance to I-5 will be on your left as you right turn into the parking lot.)
Parking Lot Update, as of 12/1/21: You may park anywhere in the lot when we are open except for the five spaces marked “Reserved 24/7”. They are in the northwest corner of the lot, on your left as you come in the entrance. Parking is free when you check in at the Go Center – the day manager will give you a pass for your car. There is also paid parking 24/7 in the lot, so be sure to keep your pass visible.
Bicyclists may lock their bikes on the racks inside the building in the lobby area. There are places for three bikes.
Bus Riders should note that we are next to a northbound express stop for I-5. King County Metro Routes 64 and 322 stop here. However, the matching southbound express stop, which used to be across the bridge, has been removed now that Light Rail has reached our neighborhood. Our local bus, the 44, travels east and west on 45th St. NE. Note: the Route 44 bus stop at 7th Ave has been removed. The nearest stops are at Roosevelt Way NE and 45th St NE, and Latona Ave NE and 45th St NE. They are about equidistant from the Go Center.
The entrance to the Go Center is next to the parking lot, near the front of the building. Just go up the stairs to reach the Center, which occupies the entire 2nd floor.
We also have an elevator on the right side of the lobby.
We have a bicycle rack inside the front door.
