Football fans who want an easy trip to the games this weekend can climb on King County Metro Transit game day shuttles to the University of Washington Huskies game on Saturday, Sept. 21, and Seahawks game on Sunday, Sept. 22.

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 University District, Montlake, SODO, Pioneer Square and downtown Seattle areas can expect severe traffic congestion and delays before and after Husky and Seahawks games and other stadium events.

Saturday, Sept. 21: UW Huskies vs. Idaho State

Non-stop shuttles heading to the noon Saturday, Sept. 21 Husky game at Husky Stadium depart designated park-and-ride lots beginning two hours before kickoff. Based on recent game day ridership, high demand is expected for these shuttles.

Metro’s Husky shuttles serve the Eastgate, Federal Way South 320th Street, Houghton, Kingsgate, Shoreline, South Kirkland and South Renton park-and-ride lots and the Northgate Transit Center. Buses leave as they fill – or about every 20 minutes. The last shuttle to the game leaves about 50 minutes before kickoff, except South Renton and Federal Way, where the last shuttles will leave 60 minutes before kickoff.

Husky shuttle fare information

  • Park & Ride Husky fans who do not purchase a UW Athletics “Season Pass” can pay a $5 fare per game prior to boarding at each Park & Ride lot.
  • Fares will be collected by non-Metro staff at the park and ride lots.
  • Children under 5 ride free, but there are no other free or reduced fares for P&R shuttles.
  • Game tickets, ORCA, UPASS and paper transfers are not valid on P&R shuttles.

Buses returning to the park and rides leave from designated locations near Husky stadium depicted in an online map. The last shuttle leaves Husky Stadium 30 minutes after the game. All details are on Metro’s Husky shuttle page.

Sunday, Sept. 22: Seahawks vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Non-stop shuttles to the 1:25 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22 Seahawks 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.

Seahawk shuttle fare information

  • Cash-only fare is $4 each way or $8 for a round trip. Exact change is required.
  • No ORCA cards or passes are accepted for the shuttles.

Buses returning to the park and rides leave from Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street. Details are on Metro’s Seahawks shuttle page.
