Let transit take you out to the ballgames!  Both the Mariners
and the Sounders FC will have Saturday games.

Game time for the Sounders FC will be at 1:00 PM at Qwest
Field and the Mariners game will be at 6:10 PM at Safeco Field.

Metro has many routes that are a short walk to Qwest Field.  
And, while there are a few revisions to traffic patterns and transit
service in the vicinity of Safeco Field since last season, transit
service provided by King County Metro and its regional transit
partners is an excellent option for getting to and from both games.

We’ll get you to the games!
