Going to an event at Climate Pledge Arena? Whether you’re listening to a concert, rooting for your favorite sports team or enjoying ANY other event, your ticket is now also your free ride to and from the Seattle Center!

Building on the success of getting fans to Seattle Kraken and Seattle Storm games, King County Metro and other transit agencies are partnering with Climate Pledge Arena to provide free transit to all public events at the arena.

An example of the mobile ticket that will get you to Climate Pledge Arena

Riders can use their ticket to a Climate Pledge event to access Transit GO Tickets using the Seattle Kraken app  to ride transit. The pass will allow access to buses, light rail, the Seattle Center Monorail and other transit.

Users will have transit passes equal to the number of tickets they have for that event. The transit passes are valid up to two hours before doors open and 2 hours after the event concludes.

If you’ve not used transit to make your trip to Climate Pledge Arena, here are some tips:

Plan your trip in advance: Visit kingcounty.gov or use a third-party app like “One Bus Away” or Google Maps (using transit mode). Another way to find the best routes is by calling Metro Customer Service at 206-553-3000 weekdays, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Press 1 for an interpreter.

If you’re traveling from downtown Seattle to Climate Pledge Arena, here are some great travel options:

  • Catch the bus at Third Avenue and Pike Street. Ride either Route 3 or 4 to Fifth Avenue and Broad Street. After the game, you can head downtown for entertainment or other travel connections by boarding Route 3 or 4 at Fifth Ave and Broad St. (Outside of MoPOP) and riding to Third Avenue and Pike Street downtown.
  • Routes 1,2813, and the RapidRide D Line are also very close to the arena.
  • The Seattle Center Monorail is another way to move between downtown Seattle and Climate Pledge Arena. Link light rail riders can make an easy transfer to the Seattle Monorail at Westlake Station. Your ORCA card is also good on the Monorail!

To keep things moving, have your payment method ready each time you board.

Welcome aboard! We look forward to having you ride to Climate Pledge Arena with us!
