Sports fans can take Sound Transit's Sounder train to two sporting events this Sunday, May 31 - the Mariners game against the Cleveland Indians at 1:10 p.m., and the Sounders FC match against the NY Red Bulls at 2 p.m.

Mariners fans from the south can take the stadium-bound train from Lakewood at 10:45 a.m. The stadium-bound train from the north will depart Everett at 11:15 a.m.

Sounders FC fans from the south can take the stadium-bound train from Lakewood at 11:15 a.m. The stadium-bound train from the north will depart Everett at 11:45 a.m.

Return trains will depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the events.

A complete schedule of game day Sounder train service this season is available at soundtransit.org/Schedules/Event-services.

Special Sounder service is in addition to Link light rail service to and from Safeco and CenturyLink fields. Link runs every 10 minutes on Sunday and will serve nine stations in SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link light rail will not operate in the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel this weekend. The tunnel will be closed May 30 and 31 for system upgrades in preparation for the early 2016 opening of the University Link light rail extension.

Many ST Express buses also drop off passengers near the stadiums. 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.
