A silver celebration is arriving in Seattle September 14 and if you’re planning to be Ridin’ round in it, flawless, remember your ride should be transit! You will have a number of transit options to arrive and enjoy Beyoncè as her Renaissance World Tour turns Lumen Field into her own personal “BeyHive.”
If you’re thinking you’ll jump in the car to get to Lumen, here’s a way to save your quarter tank of gas: leave the car at home or the park-and-ride, and board the region’s fast and frequent public transportation network with expanded service. Sound Transit’s Link 1 Line will run extra trains after the show and Water Taxi riders will be able to have the wind whipping ’round your face’ by riding one of the six late-night water taxi trips to West Seattle.
“It’s been a summer Renaissance of concerts this year, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Queen Bey to King County,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine. “Fans heading to the show are encouraged to ‘save some silver’ and get in Formation by leaving the cars at home and using transit options available to enjoy the show All Night.”
Metro’s preparing for you to Get on the bus with an additional handful of bus trips to help with post-concert crowds. Remember, every member of the Hive who is 18 and younger in King County can ride transit for free.
We encourage riders to allow extra travel time & board available transit swiftly within the half hour after concerts let out. Thank you in advance for your patience.
