Auburn Station Access Improvements Project

Sound Transit will improve access to the Auburn Sounder Station for pedestrians, bicyclists, bus riders and drivers. Improvements are expected to be completed by 2023.

Thousands of people ride the Sounder Train from the Auburn Station every day. Sound Transit provides 13 round trips each weekday, and predicts approximately 70 percent increase in ridership by 2035. With passage of ST3, Sound Transit expects the Sounder service to grow and expand even more. As ridership and service increases, easy and reliable access to the stations will continue to be important.
