Transit Takeover

These trains are hard to miss: BECU, proud sponsor of both University of Washington and Washington State University, is promoting fan safety by offering a free ride to ticket-holders to the game. We're also decorating entire Sound Transit Light Rail trains in honor of the 2019 Boeing Apple Cup. The only choice: which side will you select, purple or crimson?

On the Ticket Program Date, in exchange for the Ticket Fees, Sound Transit will accept a Boeing Apple Cup Game Ticket, in either electronic or paper form, as acceptable proof of payment for passengers riding Link Light Rail. Sound Transit will honor Boeing Apple Cup Game Tickets as Link Light Rail fare beginning three hours prior to the scheduled start of the Boeing Apple Cup, and until the end of Sound Transit's transit day, such that Boeing Apple Cup Game Ticket holders may utilize Link Light Rail on a round-trip basis to and from the game. Persons must maintain their Boeing Apple Cup Game Ticket on their person when riding Link Light Rail and must show such game ticket to a fare inspector upon request. Failure to show a valid Boeing Apple Cup Game Ticket may result in fines to the rider; BECU shall not be responsible for any such rider fines. If you have already purchased transit fare, BECU shall not be responsible for refunding the cost.
