Auburn Station Access Improvements Project

Sound Transit is working to improve access to the Auburn Sounder Station for pedestrians, bicyclists, bus riders and drivers. In November of 2017 the Sound Transit Board identified a preferred package of improvements for the Auburn station. This includes a new parking garage located at 1st Street Northwest and BA Street Northwest, which would add approximately 535 new spaces, as well as pedestrian, bicycle and transit access improvements. Read more about the preferred alternative here in the project fact sheet. Improvements are expected to be completed by 2023.

With two roundtrips added to the Sounder south line in 2017, 13 daily roundtrips now stop at the Auburn station, and ridership has been growing steadily. As ridership and service increases, easy and reliable access to the stations will continue to be important.

Attend the open house: Tuesday, October 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Auburn City Hall, Council Chambers, 25 W. Main St., Auburn.
