Q: When are you going to add more Sounder trips? We need more trains! by Matthew Johnson December 8, 2015

In September 2016, we added a round-trip train between Lakewood and Seattle. Later in 2017, we’re planning to add two more round-trip trains. These trip times will be determined based on track availability. 

Several projects are in the works to accommodate these additional Sounder trips. We’re adding a new track in Lakewood, where we store our trains overnight, to support another train set. We’re also replacing the Tacoma Trestle near Freighthouse Square to help improve efficiency. 

There are no current plans to expand our service between Seattle and Everett.
