Metro Transit kicks off football season Saturday with Seahawks shuttles

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

King County Metro Transit has special shuttles to take football fans to the Seattle Seahawks first preseason game Saturday, August 11.

The non-stop shuttles leave the Northgate Transit Center beginning two hours before kick-off. Each shuttle will leave as it is filled. The last shuttle leaves for the game about 35 minutes before kickoff. All pre-game shuttles arrive near CenturyLink Field northbound on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street.

A cash-only exact fare of $4 one way or $8 round trip per person is required. No passes or transfers are accepted.

The Northgate shuttle leaves northbound on Fifth Avenue South from just north of South Weller Street.

Shuttles are not available for the team’s weeknight games on Thursday, Aug. 30, and Monday, Sept. 24.

All travelers in the SODO, Pioneer Square and downtown Seattle areas can expect traffic congestion and delays before and after Seahawks games and other Stadium events.

The Trip Planner provides information about scheduled service and stops, and does not take service revisions into account.
