Transit and Parking

Seattle Streetcar

Thanks to our friends at SDOT, the Seattle Streetcar from Capitol Hill to Pioneer Square will run extended hours to help you get to the Summit and Fest May 11-13. Ride free if you've got an Upstream pass, and be sure to snap a photo of the special Upstream Streetcar and hashtag #UpstreamFest.


ReachNow, car sharing by BMW, has your fest parking covered. Drive ReachNow to Upstream Music Fest + Summit and park at one of two ReachNow Drop Zones located between Washington and Yesler and 1st Ave S. at S. Railroad Way (see map). ReachNow members have a sweet Members-Only lounge near the Main Stage in the North Lot with the opportunity to win exclusive VIP access to events throughout the fest. Not a member yet? Lifetime memberships are free for a limited time (a $39 value). For more information, visit

Other Transit Options
Pioneer Square is the hub of all transit in Seattle. It’s just steps from the Washington State Ferry and Water Taxi Terminal, Amtrak, major Metro routes, has a Link Light Rail stop, and if you’ve got a skateboard you can bomb down Yesler (WEAR YOUR HELMET!) straight into the Fest. It’s a serious planes, trains and automobiles situation.
