Ride to Husky Stadium with Metro park-and-ride shuttles

Summary

Metro operates direct service for football fans to Husky Stadium from six park-and-rides, including Eastgate, Houghton, Kingsgate, South Kirkland, Federal Way and South Renton.

Story

Huskies fans can ride Metro’s direct shuttles to Saturday’s game vs. UCLA, which is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. Metro’s pre-game shuttles leave park-and-ride lots as they fill starting 2½ hours prior to kick-off time from most locations, and about 3 hours before the game from south-end locations.   The last buses leave from each park-and-ride approximately one hour before kick-off. 

Metro no longer operates direct service from the Northgate Transit Center or the Shoreline park-and-ride. The Huskies gameday transportation website has information on private shuttle service for fans traveling from those locations.

A $7 round trip voucher is required for each person age 6 and older to board any Metro-operated Husky service. Vouchers can be purchased from the vendor located at each park-and-ride lot. 

No passes or transfers are accepted on any park-and-ride direct service, including ORCA and UPASS. Game tickets are not accepted as fare on any service.

While every effort is made to accommodate all Husky customers, fans are encouraged to allow plenty of time to get to the games, due to expected traffic and congestion. Fans who miss the last park-and-ride shuttle may ride 
regular transit service

Fans also can ride Link light rail to the University of Washington station. 

Regular buses rerouted

On Saturday, expect bus and car traffic on Montlake Boulevard and Northeast Pacific Street in advance of the Huskies game. Riders of most regular Metro routes serving the UW Link light rail station (31, 32, 44, 45, 65, 67, 71, 73, 75, 271 and 372) will be rerouted to the area of 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Campus Parkway before and immediately after the game.

U-District shuttle to Link light rail

Riders headed to or from the Link station or Husky Stadium can walk or ride a free Metro shuttle bus the rest of the way. The U-District shuttle bus will operate about every 7½ minutes from a regular posted southbound bus stop on University Avenue Northeast just north of Northeast Pacific Street. The shuttle will serve stops along Pacific Street in both directions.

Seahawks shuttle service discontinued 

Metro no longer operates direct gameday service to CenturyLink Field. Fans riding transit to the game can use Metro’s online Trip Planner or call Metro’s Customer Information Office at (206) 553-3000. The Customer Information Office is open weekdays, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Riders of regular Metro routes should plan ahead and expect crowds before and after the Seahawks game at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday.
