Take transit to the hydro races and Mariners game
Ride transit to hydro races August 4-5 and the Mariners vs. Blue Jays August 5
To accommodate crowds attending the Albert Lee Cup hydroplane races, Metro will add trips to its Route 50 bus and provide Saturday and Sunday service every 15 minutes between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Route 50, which normally operates every 30 minutes, serves Genesee Park near the Stanley Sayres Pit and connects with Link light rail at Columbia City and Othello stations. There will be no other special service to this event.
Special game day trains will serve Mariners fans attending 1:10 p.m. Sunday game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Mariners fans can bypass weekend traffic by taking Sound Transit’s popular game day Sounder train to the 1:10 p.m. game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.
The stadium-bound train from the south will depart Lakewood at 10:10 a.m. The stadium-bound train from the north will depart Everett at 10:45 a.m. Return trains depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the game. Both trains will serve all stops along the routes.
A complete schedule of Sounder service to select Mariners games this season is available at soundtransit.org/mariners.
Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from Safeco Field. Link runs every 10 minutes on Sunday and serves 16 stations at the University of Washington, on Capitol Hill, in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link’s Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from Safeco Field.
Many ST Express and King County Metro buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/schedule. King County Metro bus schedules can be found at metro.kingcounty.gov/schedules/.
Sounder and Link riders can avoid the lines for the ticket vending machines going home by paying for the return trip with the purchase of a Day Pass. One-way tickets and Day Passes can also be purchased with the Transit GO Ticket app. Another way to skip lines at ticket vending machines is by getting an ORCA card. 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.
