Headed to CenturyLink Field on Saturday? Consider taking one of King County Metro Transit's special shuttles to avoid driving to the game.
According to King County Metro Transit, the nonstop shuttles leave the Eastgate Park and Ride, 14200 SE Eastgate Way, in Bellevue, starting two hours before kick-off. Each shuttle will leave as it is filled. The last shuttle leaves for the game about 35 minutes before kickoff.
All pre-game shuttles arrive near CenturyLink Field northbound on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street, according to Metro. The shuttles are also available at the South Kirkland Park and Ride and the Northgate Transit Center.
The ride costs $4 one-way or $8 round-trip per person in cash and in exact fare (Metro doesn't give change). No transfers or passes will be accepted.
Shuttle buses returning to Eastgate and South Kirkland leave on southbound Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street.
The shuttle service will be available all season, except for the team’s weeknight games on Thursday, Aug. 30, and Monday, Sept. 24, according to Metro.
Of course, you can take the regular buses to CenturyLink Field. Sound Transit 554 from the Eastgate Park and Ride and the Sound Transit 550 from the South Bellevue Park and Ride go directly to the International District station in Seattle, which is within a few blocks of the stadium.
All travelers in the SODO, Pioneer Square and downtown Seattle areas can expect traffic congestion and delays before and after Seahawks games and other Stadium events, according to King County Metro.
