Walk

The Blue Building is along Phinney Ave, and is most easily accessed by the ramp on the north side of the building, near the bus stop. The Brick Building's street address is 6615 Dayton Ave. N, and can be accessed from Dayton Ave, or from Phinney Ave. via the outdoor staircases on the south and through the middle of the site. Pedestrians are always welcome to use the staircases, whether they are going to activities at the Phinney Center or just passing through. Note: There is no access to the Farmer's Market from the south staircase, you must use the center staircase.

 

Resources: View the Seattle walking map online to see street grades, outdoor staircases, walking times for a variety of routes, and walking attractions. Or view the Greenwood-Phinney walking map to find neighborhood businesses in walking distance.

     

   
Bike

Directions: Phinney Avenue to the south and Greenwood Avenue to the north have marked bike lanes and a signed route along the Interurban Trail, which connects to the Burke-Gilman Trail. Please use caution when approaching from the north on Greenwood Avenue because there is low visibility around the curve; it may be safest to dismount and use the crosswalk. If you are coming from the east or the west, expect steep hills.

 

Covered bike parking is located on the ramp near the front entrance to the Blue Building. Other racks are located along Phinney Avenue in the planting strip, on the east side of the upper parking lot, and in the parking lot near the entrance to the Brick Building.
Resources: View the Seattle Bike Map online (the Phinney Center is marked with a star) or pick up a copy in the Blue Building lobby. Try Ride the City or Google Maps for point-to-point directions.

     

   
Transit

Directions: Metro route 5 local and express buses travel on Phinney Avenue and stop in front of the Phinney Center at the corner of 67th and Phinney. When you see North 65th Street on the northbound bus, you're getting close. When you see North 70th Street on the southbound bus, you're getting close.

 

Resources: Use Metro Trip Planner or Google Maps to plan your transit route. Get real time arrival information online or on your phone with One Bus Away. The PNA has pamphlets for nearby Metro routes in the Blue Building lobby.

     

   
Carpool / Drive

Please consider carpooling!
Carpooling Resources: Use the carpool board in the Blue Building lobby to find a carpool match and get templates for organizing carpools in your group meetings. Our online carpool tool will debut soon.

Continue with the offramp to 50th Street (the first stoplight).
