Metro offers special shuttles to Husky games

Metro is once again providing special shuttles to the Husky home games from eight area Park and Ride lots, including: Kenmore, Shoreline, Northgate Transit Center, Houghton, South Kirkland.
   Buses begin boarding two hours prior to kickoff, and leave every 20 minutes or when they are full.
   In most cases the last bus leaves the park and ride lot 45 minutes before kickoff and arrives at Husky Stadium about five minutes before the game.
   For details, see the Husky Transportation Guide on Metro Online at http://transit.metrokc.gov.
   There is also plenty of regularly scheduled transit service traveling to or near Husky Stadium. Use Metro's online Trip Planner at http://tripplanner.metrokc.gov, and enter Husky Stadium as the destination for tips on the most convenient route.
   Traveling to or from Husky games, your ride on any Metro bus and on Sound Transit Route 550 is free when you show your game ticket or ticket stub to the bus driver. If you do not have a game ticket or stub, please pay an appropriate regular fare on regularly scheduled service with exact change, a valid pass, transfer, or Metro's Visitors Pass. On all Sound Transit Express bus service (except Route 550), please pay the appropriate ST fare at all times. Metro's Visitors Pass is not accepted on any Sound Transit Regional Express bus.
