Metro schedule changes for the week and shuttles to the Apple Cup

Metro has schedule changes this week for Thanksgiving holiday; plus shuttles from four park-and-rides to Apple Cup on Saturday

Huskies host Cougs at Century Link – not on UW campus; $5 for round-trip shuttle

This week, King County Metro Transit will be operating a Sunday schedule on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, and then a reduced weekday schedule for Friday, November 25. Both days will have less bus service than on a regular weekday.

On Saturday, November 26, Metro will have regular service and special shuttles for the 104th Apple Cup between the University of Washington Huskies and the Washington State University Cougars. This year’s clash is being held at CenturyLink Field, home of the Seahawks, due to the renovation of Husky Stadium.

There are some changes for the Husky shuttles this weekend due to the CenturyLink location that fans should take note of:

  • The shuttles will provide round-trip service from four park-and-ride lots: Eastgate, South Kirkland, Northgate, and Federal Way. There are no shuttles from other lots for this game. And, please remember the last shuttle leaves CenturyLink 30 minutes after the end of the game.
  • There will be a charge for the special shuttle to CenturyLink Field to help cover the service costs. There is a one-way cash fare of $2.50, or $5 for a round-trip voucher purchased from the bus driver. Please have the correct cash fare, the bus driver does not carry change.
  • Children under 5 ride free, but there are no other free fares for this game.
  • Admission tickets are not valid for bus fares to/from CenturyLink for this game on either the shuttles or regular service. Also, ORCA passes and transfers cannot be used on the shuttles.
  • Check the online Trip Planner for other regular transit service options to get to and from the game.
