UW Husky Football
Depending on their starting points in Metro’s service area, Husky football fans have several options for getting to and from weekend home games, including direct shuttles from four eastside park & ride lots; a new shuttle from the Redondo Heights P&R; contracted non-Metro shuttles from two other park & ride lots; Link light rail; Metro buses that connect with Link, and regular Metro bus service that travels near the stadium.

Changes for 2019
South King County P&R shuttle service
There is no longer any Husky service from the Federal Way P&R.
Direct express Husky shuttle bus service from South King County to Husky Stadium will operate from the Redondo Heights Park & Ride just north of Federal Way at 27454 Pacific Hwy S, and is available to fans who purchase a season bus pass for this route.
The Redondo Heights Park & Ride service operates similarly to other Park & Ride service, with the notable difference being that riders must purchase a season bus pass in advance to use the Redondo Heights route. Single game bus passes are not accepted for this service.
The Montlake Freeway stops on SR 520 are closed
Montlake Freeway Station bus stops along SR 520 have been permanently closed. No Metro or Sound Transit buses stop on SR 520 at Montlake.
Apple Cup service
Apple Cup bus transportation will be significantly different due to the 2019 game being on a Friday. A separate bus operation plan will be developed and will be similar to previous years’ weekday games. It is important to note that bus service will be limited, different Park & Ride lots will be used, and a bus pass must be purchased in advance of the game. Complete information will be available later in the season.
Park & ride express shuttle bus service
Contracted Metro shuttle buses operate express shuttle service on Husky home game days from five designated park and ride lots.
With the purchase of a season or game day pass (except at Redondo), fans can park in the Park & Ride lots and travel stress-free to and from Husky Stadium.
After the game, pass holders can board buses in front of the stadium for the return trip.

Bus service is rerouted during Husky games
Buses that normally travel near Husky stadium are rerouted during Husky football games, however many fans are still able to walk from the rerouted service, and Metro also operates a shuttle between UW Link light rail station and the University District, where riders can make connections with rerouted buses if needed.
Visit Metro’s Service Advisories page for reroute information prior to each game.

Unless otherwise indicated, a valid fare is required upon boarding all regularly scheduled transit service.
