Metro offering special service to Seahawks game

Regular transit ridersshould be prepared for crowds, traffic and likely delays near event areas.

Transit service in Metro’s service area will be affected by reroutes or delays caused by multiple holiday and other events this weekend, including possible citizens rallies and Sunday’s Seahawks game.

Regular transit riders and fans should be prepared for crowds, traffic and likely delays in and near affected event areas, and allow plenty of time for trips to and from or in the vicinity of games, events or other destinations.

Transit service for the Seahawks game on Sunday, Dec. 4

Riding regularly scheduled transit service on any game day, or park and ride shuttle service when it is available on weekends, is the easiest way to get to and from Seahawks games.

While Metro operates Seahawks weekend gameday non-stop shuttle bus service from the Eastgate P&R, Northgate Transit Center and South Kirkland P&R, fans are also encouraged to ride regularly scheduled transit service from these or other locations.

Seahawks P&R Shuttles leave each of the three parking areas 2 hours prior to kick off time as they fill, with the last bus leaving about 30 minutes before kickoff.

A cash-only, exact fare of $4 one way or $8 round trip per person is required on Seahawks P&R shuttles. No ORCA cards, passes or transfers are accepted. A valid regular fare is required on all other regularly scheduled Metro service.

Pre-game shuttles arrive near CenturyLink Field on 5th Av S at S Weller St.

After the game, buses returning to Eastgate and South Kirkland leave from southbound on 5th Av S at S Weller St, and the Northgate Shuttle leaves northbound on 5th Av S from just north of S Weller St.

The last bus leaves 45 minutes after the end of the game.

Other planned weekend events

The Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition in and around Westlake Center on Friday evening will require some buses to be rerouted and may cause traffic delays in downtown Seattle; during the weekend other buses will have minor reroutes due to holiday events in West Seattle, Bothell and Auburn; there are reroutes or potential delays around several area construction sites.
