To the game
Metro provides shuttle service from the following park & ride (P&R) lots to Husky Stadium (Friday, Nov. 4, service will operate to/from only Houghton P&R):
Non-stop Husky service leaves from the park & ride lots as buses fill, starting approximately two hours before game time and until 45 minutes before kickoff.
Buses will be filled to seated capacity and every effort will be made to accommodate all Husky customers. However, fans are encouraged to allow plenty of time to get to the games, due to expected traffic and congestion.
Fans who miss the last P&R Shuttle may ride regular transit service.

Following the game, buses depart from designated locations near Husky Stadium. Buses begin postgame operation during the 4th quarter. Color-coded destination signs are in the front and side windows on each bus.
Pedestrians leaving Husky Stadium are encouraged to use the elevated walkway over Montlake Blvd E for safety, to help relieve street congestion and to keep traffic moving.
The last P&R Shuttles leave Husky Stadium 30 minutes after the end of the game.
