Sounder train service has been suspended for Friday and Saturday during the special game service on the route from Edmonds, Mukilteo and Everett to Seattle.
Passengers will need to take buses on a regular schedule for the afternoon commute.
The 48-hour passenger service suspension was caused by a mudslide in downtown Seattle.
About 50 feet of rail was covered by mud after heavy rain fell in the area in the last 24 hours, Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas said.
The mud was removed on early morning Friday.
The railroad company is monitoring the area for more possible slides. Service is scheduled to be restored Sunday morning, Melonas said.
Sound Transit is recommending the following alternatives to depart from downtown Seattle:
• To Edmonds: Community Transit Route 416 will depart Fifth Avenue and James Street at 4:27 p.m., 4:58 p.m., 5:31 p.m. and 5:57 p.m.
To Mukilteo: Community Transit Route 417 will depart Fourth Avenue S. and S. Jackson Street at 3:09 p.m., 3:59 p.m., 4:22 p.m., 4:50 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
To Everett: Sound Transit Route 510 will depart from Fourth Avenue S. and S. Jackson Street every 10 minutes.
People can check and for more detailed bus schedules.
