December 18, 2012 · 5:11 PM
Football fans heading to the game this weekend can catch a Seahawks game shuttle operated by King County Metro Transit on Sunday, Dec. 23.
Shuttles require cash fare and leave specific park-and-ride locations about two hours before kickoff, and return to those park-and-rides after the game. 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. Non-stop shuttles to the 5:20 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 23, Seahawks game at CenturyLink Field leave designated park-and-ride lots beginning two hours before kickoff.
Metro’s Seahawks shuttles leave the Eastgate Park-and-Ride, Northgate Transit Center, and South Kirkland Park-and-Ride 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.
Cash-only fare is $4 each way or $8 for a round trip. No ORCA cards or passes are accepted for the shuttles. Exact change is required. Buses returning to Eastgate and South Kirkland leave on southbound Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street, and the Northgate shuttle leaves northbound on Fifth Avenue South from just north of South Weller Street. Details are on Metro’s Seahawks shuttle page.
