Whatcom Transportation Authority (WTA) and the Port of Bellingham (POB) are working together to bring transit service to Bellingham International Airport.

Riders can catch WTA’s Route 3 at Bellingham Station, at Cordata Station or at stops along the route. Route 3 operates from about 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays and from about 7:40 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays. There is no service on Sundays.

Route 3 will drop riders at a bus shelter located on Bakerview Road near Airport Way. From there, riders call POB’s Airport Shuttle. POB’s Airport Shuttle will pick them up and drop them off at the airport terminal. The POB Airport Shuttle operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No advance reservations are required.

The cost to ride WTA is $1 per trip. All valid WTA bus passes will also be accepted.  The POB Airport Shuttle is free of charge.

WTA and POB are using the “Ride-Shuttle-Fly” program to explore the demand for bus service to the airport. If demand is high, both organizations may consider transit service directly to the terminal building in the future.

“The Port is pleased to have been able to work with WTA to provide a new and reliable bus connection to Bellingham International Airport,” said Port Commission President Dan Robbins. “The Port is always looking for opportunities to improve service to its airport customers. This new transit service will add options and value for those traveling to and from our region.”
