Sounders FC fans can take Sound Transit’s Sounder train to the evening match against San Jose Earthquakes Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m.

The stadium-bound train from the north will depart Everett at 4:15 p.m., reaching Edmonds at 4:41 p.m. The return train departs King Street Station 35 minutes after the match.

A complete schedule of Sounder service to select Sounders FC matches this season is available at soundtransit.org/soundersfc.

Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from CenturyLink Field. Link runs every 10 to 15 minutes on Saturday and serves 15 stations including the University of Washington, Capitol Hill, in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link’s Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from CenturyLink Field.

Many ST Express and King County Metro buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/schedule. King County Metro bus schedules can be found at metro.kingcounty.gov/schedules/.

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. 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 orcacard.com.
