Sports fans can skip traffic coming into Seattle on Sunday by riding Sound Transit’s Sounder event trains for the MLS Cup Final Sounders FC vs. Toronto FC 12 p.m. match.
Inbound Sounder trains will depart from Edmonds at 9:51 a.m. and 10:11 a.m. Return trains depart King Street Station 60 minutes after the game. Both trains will serve all stops along the routes.
A complete schedule of Sounder service to select Sounders FC matches this season is available at soundtransit.org/schedules/event-services.
Sounder game trains are not only for sports fans, but can be used by anyone wishing to travel to Seattle on a weekend. For tips and more information, visit www.soundtransit.org/blog/platform/weekend-sounder-trains-not-just-sports-fans.
Many ST Express and King County Metro buses also drop off passengers near the stadiums. ST Express tickets can be purchased with the Transit GO Ticket app. Visit soundtransit.org/schedule for Link and ST Express bus schedules or visit metro.kingcounty.gov/schedules/ for Metro bus schedules.
A few additional reminders for a smoother trip:
- Riders using an Orca card should remember to tap on and off at Sounder and light rail stations.
- Free parking is available at all Sounder stations, including the Edmonds station.
- CenturyLink Stadium does not allow bags larger than 4.5×6.5,” so large purses should be left at home. A 1-gallon plastic freezer bag, 12x6x12” clear plastic bag or no bag at all will help get you through security faster.
