Sound Transit will operate special game day service for Seahawks Saturday

Friday, January 6, 2017

Sound Transit will operate special game day Sounder train service this Saturday for the 5:15 p.m. post-season game between the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions.

Special Sounder service is in addition to Link light rail, ST Express and King County Metro service to and from CenturyLink Field. Light rail and bus service will operate on regular Saturday schedules.

Inbound trains from Snohomish County will depart Everett at 2:15 and 2:30pm with stops in Mukilteo and Edmonds, arriving at King Street Station at 3:14 and 3:29pm.

Return trains to Everett will leave Seattle 15 and 35 minutes after the game.

Due to possible service impacts as a result of inclement weather conditions, riders are encouraged to check for alerts prior to traveling. Riders can sign up for service alerts at soundtransit.org.

An online schedule of Sounder trains serving the Seahawks game is available here

Special Sounder service is in addition to Link light rail service to and from CenturyLink Field. Link runs three-car trains every 10 minutes on weekends and serves 16 stations including the University of Washington. Downtown Seattle Link’s Stadium station is a short walk from the stadium.

Many ST Express and King County Metro buses drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express buses will be operating on Saturday schedules, which are available here. King County Metro bus schedules are available here.

In addition to its regular Saturday bus service, Metro Transit will operate special Seahawks game day shuttles from three park-and-ride lots. Game-day shuttles will serve the Northgate Transit Center and travel nonstop to CenturyLink Field. Shuttles leave designated parking areas two hours prior to kick-off time, with the last bus leaving about 30 minutes before kickoff. More information on Metro’s game-day shuttle service is available here .

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit and Metro Transit services. Getting an ORCA card or buying a day pass is a great way to skip lines at ticket vending machines. Cards only cost $5 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card’s E-purse, or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips. ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available here.

Link light rail and Sounder riders who don’t have an ORCA card can avoid lines by purchasing transit tickets through King County Metro Transit’s mobile ticket app.
