Catch a Metro shuttle to see Huskies, Hawks this weekend
November 7, 2012 · Updated 11:36 AM
For football fans who want an easy trip to the games this weekend, King County Metro Transit is operating University of Washington Husky game shuttles on Saturday and Seahawks game shuttles on Sunday.
Shuttles require cash fare and leave specific park-and-ride locations two to three 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 Husky and Seahawks games and other stadium events.
Saturday, Nov. 10: UW Huskies, final home game of the season
Non-stop shuttles heading to the 7:30 p.m. Saturday Husky game at CenturyLink Field depart designated park-and-ride lots beginning 2 1/2 hours before kickoff. Based on recent game day ridership, high demand is expected for these shuttles.
Metro’s Husky shuttles serve the Eastgate, Federal Way, and South Kirkland park-and-ride lots and the Northgate Transit Center. Buses leave as they fill – or about every 20 minutes. The last shuttle to the game leaves about 40 minutes before kickoff. Most pre-game shuttles arrive near CenturyLink Field northbound on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street. The Federal Way shuttle stops on Fourth Avenue South just south of South Royal Brougham Way.
Shuttle fares are $5 cash for a round trip or $3 cash when paid each way. 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. Buses returning to Federal Way park-and-ride leave southbound on Fourth Avenue South just south of South Royal Brougham Way. Details are on Metro’s Husky shuttle page.
Sunday, Nov. 11: Seahawks game
Non-stop shuttles to the 1:05 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, Seahawk 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.
