Fans can boat, bus, bike or walk to Husky Stadium. Complete information for traveling to Husky Stadium will be available this spring and will also be included in your Season Ticket mailing in August.
Husky Athletics is continuing its partnership with Metro Transit of King County to offer various bus service options for Husky Football games this season. Bus service to Husky Football games from Park and Ride lots and along Metro bus routes was instituted in 1986 in an effort to encourage our fans to reduce traffic flow on game day in the neighborhoods surrounding the stadium and to ensure that parking areas are not overwhelmed with visitors. Those goals have been attained, and ridership of the bus service has more than doubled since its inception.
As ridership has grown, the costs associated with providing this service to our fans has continued to escalate at a rapid rate. In order to continue to provide the same exceptional service to our fans, in 2013, riders of all Metro buses to Husky Stadium will be charged a fare. This includes all Park and Ride, Husky Special, and regular Metro route buses.
The fee charged to the riders of public transportation to Husky games will not cover the entire cost of the bus service. The Husky Athletic Department will continue to heavily subsidize the busses in order to mitigate on-going traffic and parking concerns, and to continue to encourage the use of public transportation to Husky Football games.

Husky Harbor Boat Moorage
A long-standing and unique tradition for Husky fans is to arrive at the stadium via boat. Season permits are available April 1st-June 3rd and single game permits are available starting June 3rd. Husky Harbor staff is available on game day to assist you with the moorage process. Permits must be purchased prior to game day.
For boats anchoring in the bay, a shuttle service will be available to bring fans from their boats to the dock for free. For the return trip, a shuttle ticket is required and can be purchased at the Waterfront Activities Center office (WAC) for $8 per person. Shuttles will be available 2-2 ½ hours before game time. Signal for a shuttle with your hands, life vest or boating flag. During busy boating game days, it is recommended to flag down a shuttle at least one hour prior to kickoff.
Local charter boats are also an option for fans and can be coordinated directly through the local charter companies.
