Military personnel ride free during Fleet Week

Sound Transit, Metro Transit and King County Water Taxi provide free transit services to service members in uniform or showing valid military ID August 1-6

Sound Transit, Metro Transit and the King County Water Taxi are proud to participate in the annual Seafair tradition of honoring those who serve their country by providing free fares during Fleet Week. 

Members and former members of the Armed Forces, including active duty, veterans and retirees, can ride free on Link light rail, Sounder trains, Sound Transit and Metro buses and the Vashon and West Seattle Water Taxis during Fleet Week.

Service members not in uniform are asked to show their ID to the transit operator upon boarding or to fare inspectors if requested. Valid forms of military ID can include a Uniformed Identification Card, a Veteran Health Identification Card or a DD-214.

Ships from the U.S. Navy, U.S Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy are expected to sail into Seattle this week with vessels docking along the waterfront for the public to tour and enjoy. More information on Fleet Week and the Parade of Ships is available on
