  • Ticket vending machines

Sounder tickets and passes can be purchased at state-of-the-art touch screen machines. The machines accept cash and credit cards with debit cards on line soon.

Five are located at the Tacoma Dome commuter parking garage, three at the Auburn Sounder station, three at Seattle King Street station platform and one at the Union Station concourse.

Since a ticket vending machine won't be available at Sumner for a few months, riders boarding at Sumner receive a payment envelope, which can be dropped off at King Street Station, or tickets and passes can be purchased at other stations.
