Sounders FC fans can take an easy ride to the stadium this Saturday by hopping aboard Sound Transit’s special game-day Sounder service to the Sounders FC match against the Chivas USA at 1 p.m.

The train from the north will leave Everett at 11:15 a.m.,  arrive in Edmonds at 11:41 a.m., and  be in Seattle at 12:14 p.m. Return trains will leave King Street Station 35 minutes after the match.

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 13 stations 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 buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/Schedules. Routes 511 and 512 serve the Mountlake Terrace Park and Ride.

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. Get an ORCA card to skip lines at ticket vending machines. Cards 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.
