Husky fans going to the opening game in the new stadium can avoid the traffic crush by taking a Metro shuttle. The Saturday, August 31, 2013 season opener kicks off at 7pm - Boise State vs. Washington.

Metro will operate game day non-stop shuttle buses to Husky Stadium from the Northgate Transit Center, and Shoreline P/R, as well as other locations around the county.

Pre-game P/R shuttle service
Shuttles leave the parking areas starting two and one half hours prior to kick-off as they fill, with the last buses from each area leaving approximately 40 minutes before kick-off.

While every effort is made to accommodate all Husky Shuttle customers, fans are encouraged to allow plenty of time to get to the games, due to expected traffic and congestion at and near Husky Stadium.

Riders who miss the P/R shuttles can ride regularly scheduled service, but may not get to the stadium by kick-off time. A transfer may be required.

Fares
A $5 round trip ticket – purchased at the P/Rs prior to boarding - is required on Husky P/R shuttles. Game tickets, passes, transfers, ORCA cards and UPASS are not accepted on the P/R shuttles.

A valid regular fare is required on all regularly scheduled service. Game tickets are not accepted as fare on any service.

Post-game P/R shuttle locations
Post-game shuttles returning to park-and-ride lots leave immediately after the end of the game as they fill. The last bus to depart from each location leaves 30 minutes after the end of the game.

Husky P/R shuttles are designated by colored signs in their front and side windows and depart from the following locations:.


Route 716 – Yellow
Northbound on Stevens Way just south of Benton Lane


Route 720 – Blue
Northbound on Stevens Way just south of Benton Lane

Visit Metro’s Service Advisories page for additional Husky game day P/R Shuttle information.

Regularly scheduled transit service

Also on all Husky game days, Metro bus routes 31, 44, 65, 68, and 75 will be rerouted near Husky Stadium, due to traffic congestion associated with UW Husky football games. These routes have both pre- and post-game service revisions.

For information about regular Transit service to or from UW Husky games, or to plan other trips, visit Metro Online and the online Trip Planner.

The Trip Planner provides information about scheduled service and stops. After planning your trip, check Metro’s Service Advisories page to find out about any planned revisions to your routes.

Fans are reminded to expect heavy game-day traffic and related delays in the University area.
