Soccer fans can ride Sound Transit’s Sounder event train for the MLS Cup Final between Sounders FC and Toronto FC at noon Sunday, Nov. 10, at CenturyLink Field.

The inbound Sounder train will depart Lakewood at 9:16 a.m. and leave Kent at 10:05 a.m. The return train departs King Street Station 60 minutes after the game. One-way fare between Kent and Seattle is $4.

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 https://www.soundtransit.org/blog/platform/weekend-sounder-trains-not-just-sports-fans.

Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link Red Line service. CenturyLink Field is just a short walk from Stadium or International District/Chinatown stations. The Red Line runs every 10 minutes on Saturday and Sunday and serves 16 stations at the University of Washington, on Capitol Hill, in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac.

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.

Sounder riders can avoid the lines for the ticket machines by purchasing a Day Pass. Riders can also purchase one-way tickets and Day Passes with the Transit GO Ticket app. Another way to skip lines at ticket machines is by getting an ORCA card. 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.

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, as well as Angle Lake and Tukwila International Boulevard Red Line light rail stations.

• CenturyLink Stadium does not allow bags larger than 4.5 inches x 6.5 inches, so large purses should be left at home. A 1-gallon plastic freezer bag, 12 x 6 x 12 inches clear plastic bag or no bag at all will help get you through security faster.
