In case you don’t live in Seattle, but feel like taking transit to the Mariners and Sounders games this weekend, Sound Transit has you covered with a special Sounder service on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday (August 30), the Sounders will faceoff against the Colorado Rapids with a 1pm start time. Sounder service will be provided from both Lakewood and Everett to Seattle. The Lakewood train departs at 10:45 a.m. while the Everett train departs at 11:15 a.m. Return trains depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the end of the match. Future Saturday Sounder services for Sounders games will be provided on September 27 and October 25.

On Sunday (August 31), the Mariners will faceoff against the Washington Nationals at 1:10 p.m. Trains from the south will leave Lakewood at 10:45 a.m. Trains from the north will leave Everett at 11:15 a.m. Return trains will leave King Street Station 35 minutes after the last out. Sounder trains will also serve Mariners games on September 14 and September 28.

Seahwaks games will have Sounder service for each Sunday match throughout the season, so check out the timetable for those games online.

In addition to the special Sounder service for select weekend games, Sound Transit will provide Everett-to-Puyallup trains for the Washington State Fair on September 13 and September 20 (both Saturdays), which will operate all local stops along the line (see thefair.com/Sounder).

Keep in mind that Sound Transit’s regular fare zones still apply for each special service (except for the fair), so if you’re traveling from Lakewood, you can expect a maximum $5.25 fare each way.
