Ride the bus to this weekend’s football games

Metro offering special service to Huskies and Seahawks.

King County Metro is offering special service to both the Washington Huskies and Seattle Seahawks games this weekend.

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

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 games or other destinations.

Transit service for Husky football on Saturday, Nov. 19

Montlake- and stadium-area Metro bus routes 44, 45, 48, 65, 71, 73, 75, 271 and 372 are rerouted due to traffic congestion associated with UW Husky football games.

For quick game-day service directly to Husky Stadium, ride Link light rail from Bay A at any downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel station. The Link corridor is further served by parking capacity at Angle Lake and Tukwila International Blvd stations, and by Metro or Sound Transit bus routes at every station.

Metro also operates some extra Husky shuttle service from the Ballard and Lake City neighborhoods, and provides special UW Football shuttle service from the following park and ride lots:

• Eastgate P&R – Bay 1

• Federal Way P&R – Bay 3

• Houghton P&R

• Kingsgate P&R

• Northgate TC – Westbound on NE 100th St just east of 1st Av NE

• South Kirkland P&R

• South Renton P&R

• Shoreline P&R

Following the game, buses depart from designated locations near Husky Stadium.

Husky P&R shuttle riders can show a pre-purchased UW Athletics Husky “Season Pass” or purchase a $5 fare per person/per game voucher at the P&R prior to boarding the shuttle. Purchase vouchers from non-Metro staff at the P&R lots. Visit the UW Athletics Office page for complete information about purchasing passes and vouchers.

Regular fares, game tickets, ORCA, UPASS and paper transfers are not valid or accepted on Husky P&R shuttles.

Transit service for the Seahawks game on Sunday, Nov. 20

While Metro operates Seahawks weekend game day 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.
