Fans can take Sounder trains to one of the biggest Seattle Seahawks games this season.

Following the Seahawks' NFC West win last month, fans can grab their game gear and hop aboard Sound Transit's popular Sounder trains to the 1:35 p.m. Saturday playoff game against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field.

The cost of a one-way fare from Kent to Seattle is $3.50.

Special Sounder service will run is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from the stadiums.

Inbound trains from the south depart Lakewood at 9:50 and 10:30 a.m. and Sumner at 10:37 a.m. The first train leaving Lakewood is an express service that stops in South Tacoma, Tacoma and Puyallup before continuing directly to Seattle, where it arrives at King Street Station at 10:57 a.m.

The second train departs Sumner at 10:37 a.m. with stops in Auburn, Kent and Tukwila before reaching Seattle at 11:19 a.m. A third train leaves Lakewood at 10:30 a.m. and stops at all southline Sounder stations before arriving at King Street Station at 11:43 a.m.

Fans should note train departure times after the game. Return trains to Lakewood will depart King Street Station 10, 20 and 45 minutes after the game ends. An online schedule of Sounder trains serving Seahawks games is available at

Link light rail serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link's Stadium Station is a four-block walk from CenturyLink Field.
