12th man close to sacking the transportation system on way to Seahawks parade
It's about 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, the day to celebrate the Seattle Seahawks lop-sided victory in the Super Bowl.
The estimate is that about 500,000 fans will try to view the parade down Fourth Avenue in downtown Seattle.
If you're stuck in traffic, join the crowd. There's usually not this much black and red on the Seattle-area traffic map at this time of the morning.
Crowds were lining the streets near Sounder Southline transit stations to catch a train to Seattle. The last train left Tacoma for Seattle through South King County at 8:30 a.m.
Sound Transit in a press release wrote that Southline Sounder trains "are experiencing extremely high ridership and will not have the capacity to accommodate all riders for today's Seahawk Parade. Due to heavy demands on the entire transit system, we also have limited ability to provide back-up buses at Sounder stations."
Sound Transit was advising that riders consider alternative transportation options such as local buses, carpools, and Link Light Rail from the airport.
"We apologize for the inconvenience," wrote Sound Transit in the press release.
