Sound Transit has once again teamed up with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to offer special Sounder train service from Tacoma to Seattle for the Komen Puget Sound Race for the Cure® event starting at Qwest Field tomorrow, June 16.  

The Race Day Sounder train features a locomotive wrapped with a pink ribbon to promote the event and serve walkers and runners on their way from Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent and Tukwila to the race’s start at Qwest Field.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Komen Foundation, with its dedicated network of volunteers and over 112 Komen Race for the Cure events nationwide, is the world’s leading catalyst in the fight against this devastating disease.

Last year’s special Sounder train had more than 800 boardings for the Race for the Cure® event in Seattle. The train schedule for tomorrow’s event is below. Regular Sounder fares apply for the special train.

Sound Transit offers four Sounder weekday commuter rail trains a day (each way) between Seattle and Tacoma with stops in Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent, Tukwila and Seattle. This fall Sound Transit plans to add two more trips between Tacoma and Seattle, with one a new “reverse commute” train running from Seattle to Tacoma in the morning and returning northbound in the evening.

Sound Transit also offers two trains a day (each way) between Everett and Seattle with a stop in Edmonds, and plans to add a third train on that line this fall.
