Airport Parking and Shuttle Pains

We needed to get one of those airport shuttles for today. There was this:

SHUTTLE EXPRESS is the original SeaTac Airport ground transportation Shuttle Service. We have the largest, most affordable, reliable door-to-door, scheduled hotel, exclusive van and town car service in the Puget Sound – from Everett to Tacoma, and Seattle through Bellevue, Redmond to Issaquah. With availability 24 hours a day, seven days a week, we are always available to meet your transportation needs! We are industry leaders in safety, customer service, and technology, which allows you to get to the airport without worries. If you’ve used our service before, you know of our great people and great service. If you haven’t used us before, see for yourself – You’ll love our service!

But I hate those door-to-door shuttle services. We figured we’d probably just find nearby airport parking and take a short-range shuttle into the terminal. The official Sea-Tac Parking and Transportation page states:

We encourage you to drive in groups or take advantage of shuttles, buses, public transit and taxis whenever possible. And it’s always a good idea to check on the flow of traffic around Puget Sound before getting on the road. In addition, our automated parking payment system helps you get out of the airport more quickly.

Oh, wow… here’s a great resource: Airport Parking Reservations… Works for me!
