A triple hit for Seattle sports fans

Attention Seattle sports fans!  Heading to a weekend game at Qwest or Safeco Field? Park in the SEA-TAC airport garage for half-price and take link light rail to the stadium.  Save yourself the hassles of downtown parking while enjoying a comfortable and safe ride on the link light rail!

Sea-Tac Airport has extended its game-day half-price parking to include all weekend Mariners, Sounders, Seahawk and Husky (the Huskies home games will be at Qwest Field for the 2011-2012 season) games. The offer begins with this weekend’s home opening series for the Mariners.

With downtown parking costing up to $20 for the game unless you are willing to walk many long blocks and more, you can pay just $2 per hour in Terminal Direct for Friday, Saturday and Sunday game parking and be just a short almost door-to-door park & walk.

You’ll park on the 4th floor of the garage, an easy walk to the pedestrian bridge leading to the Link Light Rail station. Once at Stadium station, it’s just a short walk to the stadiums

The special $2 rate is 50 percent off the regular rate for Terminal Direct parking. The discount period begins three hours before game time and is a great way to avoid the hassle and expense of downtown parking. Discounted parking is available for up to eight hours and will automatically be credited at the special rate when you exit the Airport Parking Garage. A minimum stay of three hours is required and you must park in Terminal Direct.

Fans riding Link to the game can skip any post-game ticket lines by purchasing a round-trip ticket ahead of time from any ticket vending machine before boarding or by using an ORCA card The roundtrip fare from SeaTac/Airport station on Link Light Rail to the Stadium station is $5.

A great way to save gas, save money and save the hassle.  It is a triple-hit, out of the park!
