Metro football shuttles to carry fans to UW home games

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

King County Metro Transit has game day shuttles Saturday, Sept. 13, to carry thousands of fans from eight park-and-rides to the University of Washington Huskies game.

Shuttles require cash fare and leave specific park-and-ride locations starting two and a half hours before kickoff, and return to those park-and-rides after the game. Travelers in the University District and Montlake areas can expect severe traffic congestion and delays before and after Husky games. Every effort is made to accommodate all shuttle customers and fans are encouraged to leave plenty of travel time due to demand and traffic congestion.

Saturday, Sept. 13: UW Huskies vs. Illinois
Non-stop shuttles heading to the noon Saturday, Sept. 13, Husky game at Husky Stadium depart designated park-and-ride lots beginning two hours before kickoff. Based on previous game day ridership, riders should prepare for high demand for these shuttles.

During the 2014 season, Metro’s Husky shuttles serve the Shoreline park-and-ride lot (Blue Line route 720) and the Northgate Transit Center (Yellow Line route 716). Buses leave as they fill – or about every 20 minutes. The last shuttle to the game leaves about 50 minutes before kickoff.

Fare information
  • A $5 round trip voucher is required to board the shuttle, sold by a vendor at the P/R lot.
  • Game tickets, ORCA, UPASS and paper transfers are not valid on P/R shuttles.
  • Game tickets are not accepted as fare on any service.
  • Fares will be collected by non-Metro staff at the park and ride lots.
  • Children under 5 ride free, but there are no other free or reduced fares for P/R shuttles.
Buses returning to the park and rides leave from revised designated locations near Husky stadium depicted in an online map, responding to construction in and around the stadium. Some delays should be expected as buses cycle through their return trips. The last shuttle leaves Husky Stadium 30 minutes after the game. All details are on Metro’s Husky shuttle page.

Visit Metro Online or Metro’s online Trip Planner for information about regular transit service to Husky games or to plan other trips. The Trip Planner provides information about scheduled service and stops, and does not take service revisions into account. After planning your trip, check Metro’s alerts center to find out about any planned revisions to your routes.
