Sound Transit offers Special Express Buses for Everett-to-Seattle Sounder rail commuters affected by mudslide

Publish Date

Sound Transit's Sounder commuter rail customers in Everett and Edmonds will be able to make their way around a track-blocking mudslide thanks to special express bus service provided by the agency. Under its agreement with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) - which owns the tracks - Sound Transit will halt Sounder service for 48-hours while crews monitor soil and track conditions as a safety precaution. If no further slides occur, regular Sounder Service will resume on Monday January 12. The weather-related mudslide Thursday morning disrupted Sound Transit's Sounder commuter rail service between Everett and Seattle.

Sound Transit will provide special bus service in both directions for Sounder customers. For the afternoon commute, special buses will depart for Everett and Edmonds from the Seahawks Stadium North Parking Lot - at the western entrance to the Weller Street Pedestrian Bridge -- at 5:15 P.M. The northbound buses will proceed non-stop to Edmonds and Everett.

For the morning commute the special buses will depart Everett Station at 6:55 A.M. and Edmonds Station at 7:21 A.M. The southbound buses will make all regular stops in Downtown Seattle.
