Soccer and baseball fans can take Sound Transit's special game day Sounder trains to watch the Sounders FC match against Real Salt Lake on Saturday at 1 p.m., and the Mariners play the Detroit Tigers on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.

The train from the south for both events will leave Lakewood at 10:45 a.m. with a stop in Kent at 11:32 a.m. Return trains will leave King Street Station 35 minutes after each game.

Sounder trains will serve three other Sounders FC matches through October and six other Mariners games through August. A complete schedule of game day train service is available at soundtransit.org/Schedules/Event-services.

Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from Safeco Field. Link runs every 10 minutes on Sunday and serves 13 stations in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link's Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from Safeco Field.

Many ST Express buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/Schedules.

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. ORCA and all standing transit passes will be accepted.  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.
