From King County Metro Transit - Weekend Events Activities - 10/31/18

Some King County area transit service will be affected by congestion in and around Husky Stadium on Saturday, and Century Link Field on Sunday.

With two major sporting events in the Seattle area this weekend, fans are encouraged to plan ahead, share rides where possible, leave early, allow plenty of time and expect extra crowds and possible delays, especially around parking areas, rail stations and other transit facilities.

Even when it is affected by traffic, construction, temporary reroutes or delays, riding transit is still a great way to get around our community and to most local events and activities, where there is usually congestion and limited parking.

Transit reroute start and end times, routing, and other details may be subject to change.  Use regularly published timetables, allow plenty of travel time and expect possible delays.

Return to standard time 11/4
On Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 AM set your clocks back one hour to standard time. Find out more information about how this affects Metro service.

Text for departures
At - or on your way to - your stop, text your transit stop ID to 62550 to find out when the next transit service is scheduled or predicted at your stop.

Saturday November 3
Husky Football  - 6:00 PM kick-off
Metro provides extra service from several locations, and routes 31, 32, 43, 44, 45, 48, 65, 67, 71, 73, 75, 271 and 372 will be rerouted in the Husky Stadium and Montlake areas. Ride Link light rail to Husky Stadium.

Sunday, November 4
Seahawks Game – 1:05 PM kick-off
Link light rail and most transit routes that serve downtown Seattle go to within a few blocks of CenturyLink Field, or connect with routes that do.

Expect possible transit service delays in the downtown Seattle, Pioneer Square, stadium and SODO areas due to traffic, crowds and congestion near CenturyLink Field

Metro Route 21 will be rerouted off of 1st Av S between S Holgate St and Edgar Martinez Dr S, about three hours before the start - and continue until about one hour after the end - of major stadium events. Start and end times may vary. 

Known construction-related impacts to transit service are posted in Metro’s online Service Advisories table and sent to Transit Alert subscribers.  It’s a good idea to sign up for Transit Alerts or otherwise check for a service advisory before you travel.
