Sounder and Link light rail trains will operate to Sounders FC and Mariners games this weekend

Seattle Sounders FC and Mariners fans can leave traffic behind and take Sound Transit's popular event day trains this weekend. Special Sounder trains - in addition to regular Link light rail service - will run to and from the stadiums to serve crowds.

Sounder trains will operate to the Sounders FC match with Philadelphia on Saturday and to the Mariners game with the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.

Inbound Sounder trains from the south will depart Tacoma at 11:00 a.m. Inbound trains from the north will depart Everett at 11:15 a.m. Return trains depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the match or final out.

Link light rail will also run two-car trains to accommodate crowds. Passengers are dropped off at Stadium Station just a four block from Century Link and Safeco fields. Link light rail serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac.

Game day Sounder trains will operate for Sounders FC events through Saturday, Sept. 8, and for Mariner games through Sunday, Sept. 23.

Complete game day train schedules are available at Schedules/Event-services.xml.

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. More information is available at www.orcacard.com.
