Special game day Sounder trains this season

Sounder trains will serve weekend Mariners and Sounders FC daytime games

Seattle Mariners and Sounders FC fans can leave gridlock behind and take Sound Transit’s popular Sounder commuter rail trains to weekend day games this season. Special Sounder service will operate in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from the stadiums.

Sound Transit will run special Sounder trains to three Sounders FC events beginning Saturday, April 13 through Saturday, July 20. Game day trains will serve 12 Mariners games beginning Sunday, April 14 through Sunday, Aug. 25.

Inbound trains from the south will depart Lakewood at 10:45 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 games are over.

Complete game day Sounder train schedules are available at http://www.soundtransit.org/Schedules/Event-services.xml .

Link light rail serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link’s Stadium Station is a half block from Century Link Field and Safeco Field.

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 .
