Metro Transit shuttles heading to Hawks game tomorrow

The following is a release from King County Metro Transit:

Football fans who want an easy trip to the game this weekend can climb on King County Metro Transit game day shuttles to the Seahawks game tomorrow.

Shuttles require cash fare and leave specific park-and-ride locations two hours before kickoff, and return to those park-and-rides after the game. Travelers in the SODO, Pioneer Square and downtown Seattle areas can expect severe traffic congestion and delays before and after Seahawks games and other stadium events.

Sunday, Dec. 29: Seahawks vs. Rams

Non-stop Seahawks shuttles to the 1:25 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 29 game at CenturyLink Field leave designated park-and-ride lots beginning two hours before kickoff.

Metro’s Seahawks shuttles leave the Eastgate Park-and-Ride, Northgate Transit Center, and South Kirkland Park-and-Ride beginning 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 on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street.

Cash-only fare is $4 each way or $8 for a round trip. No ORCA cards or passes are accepted for the shuttles. Exact change is required. Buses returning to the park and rides leave from Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street. Details are on Metro’s Seahawks shuttle page.

Routes 16 and 66 from downtown Seattle to Northgate will be rerouted off of westbound South Jackson Street at Second Avenue Extension South from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 29, to avoid traffic congestion due to the game. Trips traveling from Northgate to downtown Seattle will not be rerouted.

For information about regular transit service to Seahawks games, or to plan other trips, visit Metro Online or Metro’s online Trip Planner. The Trip Planner provides information about scheduled service and stops, and does not take service revisions into account. After planning your trip, check Metro’s Service Advisories page to find out about any planned revisions to your routes.
