Special Sounder service will operate in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from CenturyLink Field. Link light rail serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link's Stadium Station is a four-block walk from CenturyLink Field.

Most ST Express buses drop off passengers at or near the International District Station, a short walk to the stadium. ST Express bus schedules are available at http://www.soundtransit.org/Schedules/ST-Express-Bus.

Regular fares will apply for all Sound Transit services. ORCA and all standing transit passes will be accepted.  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.
