Starting with the first Seahawks home game on Aug. 17, Metro Transit will operate weekend game day non-stop shuttle buses from the Eastgate Park and Ride, Northgate Transit Center and South Kirkland Park and Ride during the 2013/14 season.

The Park and Ride shuttles leave each of the three parking areas two hours prior to kick off time as they fill, with the last bus leaving about 35 minutes before kickoff.

A cash-only, exact fare of $4 one way or $8 round trip per person is required. No ORCA cards, passes or transfers are accepted.

All pre-game shuttles arrive near CenturyLink Field on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street.

After the game, buses returning to Eastgate and South Kirkland leave from southbound on Fifth Avenue South at South Weller Street, and the Northgate Shuttle leaves northbound on Fifth Avenue South from just north of South Weller Street.

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.

Nearly all regularly scheduled transit service – including Sound Transit Link light rail – that serves downtown Seattle, travels to or near CenturyLink Field, and is a great way to get to Seahawks games and other stadium events.
