Story

The Seahawks play the Los Angeles Rams Thursday night at CenturyLink Field, meaning transit riders should plan for crowded buses and traffic delays as thousands of fans converge on Sodo, Pioneer Square and downtown.

Both for ease of travel, and reducing traffic congestion, Seahawks fans are encouraged to ride regularly scheduled transit service, including Sound Transit’s Link light rail, to and from the game. Kick-off is slated for 5:25 p.m. -- riders should plan ahead for delays on surface streets and inside the Downtown Transit Tunnel.

Visit Metro Online or Metro’s Puget Sound Trip Planner to find out your options for riding transit to and from the game. When planning your trip, check Metro Alerts to find out about any known revisions to routes.

NO SEAHAWKS SHUTTLE: Park-and-ride shuttle buses that Metro normally operates before and after Sunday games will not be available for Thursday’s game. No other service changes are planned. There are no special fares. All service requires a regular fare payment.

Nearly all transit service that travels to or through downtown Seattle stops near CenturyLink Field, and there are many area park-and-ride lots where fans can park for free, and ride regularly scheduled transit service into the stadium area.

Metro will assign extra staff in the Downtown Transit Tunnel to help customers board on crowded buses. If you use an ORCA card, be sure to have it ready for speedier boarding. Sound Transit plans to operate extra 3-car Link trains to help handle the large crowds after the game.
