Ride Metro to the 2013 Northwest Folklife Festival

Metro's Folklife Shuttle is waiting for YOU!

This year there are two routes to choose from: one from Northgate to Seattle Center, and one from the South Renton P&R. Shuttles operate on Saturday, Sunday and Monday during the Festival.

  • Board the Northgate shuttle at the Northgate Transit Center at NE 100th St & 3rd Ave NE, or on Aurora Avenue N at N 105th, N 85th or N 46th streets. The Northgate shuttle departs approximately every 20 minutes, beginning daily at 10:00 AM until 8 PM.
  • Board the Renton shuttle at the South Renton Park & Ride at S Grady Way and Shattuck Avenue S for S. 2nd St. and Burnett Ave S., direct service to Seattle Center. The S Renton P&R shuttle departs approximately every half-hour, beginning daily at 9:20 AM until 8 PM.

Both shuttles pick up and drop off passengers on the north side of Seattle Center, eastbound on Mercer St at 3rd Avenue N. Departures from Seattle Center are scheduled every 20 minutes until the gates close each night.

The cash-only shuttle fare is $2.50 per person. Shuttle buses are equipped to carry bikes on the outside rack only as space allows.
