Today, Oak View Group and Climate Pledge Arena announced that fans will now receive a public transit pass alongside their ticket for every publicly ticketed event at Climate Pledge Arena.
Building off the success of offering transit passes for Seattle Kraken and Storm games, Climate Pledge Arena will now be offering the same benefit for concerts, family shows, comedy events, and all other public events.
“In our first year we’ve seen 25% of fans at Kraken and Storm games take public transit. It’s been one of the fastest and most fun ways for our fans to get to the arena. We’re excited to expand this benefit to all fans for all events at Climate Pledge Arena,” said Rob Johnson, SVP of Sustainability for Climate Pledge Arena and the Seattle Kraken. “Taking transit is great for the environment, helps reduce traffic congestion in our neighborhood, and gets fans from all walks of life together to celebrate sports and live entertainment. As light rail continues to expand throughout our region, we look forward to seeing even more fans use transit to get them to the arena.”
Fans can access their the public transit passes in the Seattle Kraken app after linking to their Ticketmaster account. Fans will have transit passes equal to the number of tickets they have for that event in their account. The transit passes are valid up to 2 hours before doors open and 2 hours after the event concludes.
Climate Pledge Arena’s public transit benefit currently applies to 6 different forms of transit in the Puget Sound region, King County Metro Bus and Water Taxi, Sound Transit Bus and Lightrail, and the Seattle Streetcar and Monorail.
“Climate Pledge Arena is one of the only arenas in the world to offer this kind of benefit to our fans,” said Steve Mattson General Manager of Climate Pledge Arena. “We’ve heard from thousands of Kraken and Storm fans about how much they loved the free transit pass to games, and we’re thrilled to extend this benefit to anyone attending our upcoming public events.”
