Special Sounder event trains will serve Seahawks 2015 playoff run

Seattle Seahawks fans can take Sound Transit's special Sounder trains to the Seahawks first playoff game on January 10. Special Sounder service to the 5:15 p.m. game is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from the stadium.

Seattle-bound trains from the south depart Lakewood at 1:50 and 2:30 p.m. and Sumner at 2:37 p.m. The first train leaving Lakewood is an express service that stops in South Tacoma, Tacoma and Puyallup before continuing directly to Seattle, where it arrives at King Street Station at 2:57 p.m.

The second train departs Sumner at 2:37 p.m. with stops in Auburn, Kent and Tukwila before reaching Seattle at 3:19 p.m. A third train leaves Lakewood at 2:30 and stops at all southline Sounder stations before arriving at King Street Station at 3:43 p.m.

Seattle-bound trains from Snohomish County will depart Everett at 2:15 and 2:30 p.m. with stops in Mukilteo and Edmonds, arriving at King Street Station at 3:14 and 3:29 p.m.

Return trains to Lakewood will depart King Street Station 10, 20 and 45 minutes after the game. Returns trains to Everett will leave Seattle 15 and 35 minutes after the game. An online schedule of Sounder trains serving Seahawks games is available at soundtransit.org/Schedules/Event-services/Seahawks.

Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from CenturyLink Field. Link runs every 10 minutes on Sunday and serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link's Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from CenturyLink Field.

Many ST Express buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/Schedules.

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. Getting an ORCA card is a great way to skip lines at ticket vending machines. Cards only cost $5 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card's E-purse or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips. ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available at orcacard.com.
