“Mighty are the ones who wear the purple and the gold!”
Bow Down to Washington

The University of Washington Huskies take the field on Saturday, Sept. 3 for the first of four home games this month. If you’re heading down to root for the Dawgs and see the debut of Coach Kalen DeBoer, you have lots of options for leaving your car at home and taking transit to and from Husky home games.

For complete game-day transportation information, visit the Huskies gameday transportation website.

Take your pick: fans can ride Metro shuttles from four Eastside park-and-ride lots, contracted non-Metro shuttles from some park & ride lots, Sound Transit Link light rail, Metro buses that connect with Link, and regular Metro bus service that travels near the stadium.

Park-and-Ride express shuttle bus service
Contracted Metro shuttle buses will operate express shuttle service on Husky home game days from four designated park and ride lots:

  • Eastgate Park-and-Ride
  • Houghton Park-and-Ride
  • Kingsgate Park-and-Ride
  • South Kirkland Park-and-Ride

With the purchase of a season or game day pass, fans can park in the park-and-ride lots and travel stress-free to and from Husky Stadium.

After the game, pass holders can board buses in front of the stadium for the return trip.

There are also routes that will take you to Sound Transit Link light rail, which will bring you right to Husky Stadium and ONE DOZEN Metro routes that will bring you a short distance from the stadium—just follow the purple and the gold!
