This year will be memorable for many reasons. As our region rebounds from COVID-19, Sound Transit continues to provide essential transit service – as we’ve done for decades.
In fact, 2020 marks the 20th anniversary since commuters first climbed aboard Sounder commuter trains.
On Sept. 18, 2000, Sounder made its inaugural run from Tacoma to Seattle.
Since then, it has provided a reliable and traffic-free commute for South Sound residents.
While we can’t celebrate in the ways we normally would, we still want to thank our riders for making the first two decades of Sounder a success.
To celebrate the anniversary, we’re giving away commemorative ORCA cards - and you can share your story for a chance to win one!
Whether you’re a longtime rider or have only ridden once, send a couple sentences about your memories on Sounder or how it has changed your commute (along with a picture if you have one) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
