Auburn Station Access Improvements Project

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

Thousands of people ride the Sounder Train from the Auburn Sounder Station every day. Sound Transit plans to provide 13 round trips by 2017, 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.
