Service to Seattle is offered by multiple commuter buses, the Sounder Commuter Rail, and local bus service. Therefore, Kent's public transportation system is best for commuting to and from Seattle, with many buses leaving in the early morning and late afternoon. Two major north-south lines also provide heavy rail serce in the area.

Is Kent a good place for younger people?
With a population of about 120,000, Kent is a city in King County, Washington. Located about halfway between Seattle and Tacoma, Kent is a good place for young people who need to commute to either city for work but prefer to live in a slightly smaller, more manageable city. Kent is also 26 percent cheaper than Seattle, making it a good place for younger people on a budget that want to live in the area. Although Seattle certainly has more options when it comes to nightlife, it's only 25 minutes north of Kent, and Kent itself has both other younger people living there--28 percent of its population, in fact--and an after-dark scene of its own. However, considering the fact that it rains about three out of four seasons of the year in Kent, it's not the best place for younger folk that require ample amounts of sunshine.
