Sound Transit has evaluated more than 50 potential projects to improve parking and access at Edmonds and Mukilteo Sounder stations so that more residents can use this traffic-free travel option. Examples of projects include: 

  • Edmonds: New parking locations; sidewalk along Sunset Avenue; bike facilities along 228th Street S.W.; transit speed and reliability improvements.
  • Mukilteo: New parking locations; 5th Street bike lane and shared-use path; sidewalks and bus stop enhancements along Mukilteo Speedway; new bus stops and scheduling refinements.

Background
Sound Transit is investing $40 million to improve access to the Edmonds and Mukilteo stations for riders, whether they walk, bike, use transit, are dropped off, or drive. This investment could come in the form of direct Sound Transit construction of new facilities or by providing funding to another agency or local government to build an improvement.

In early 2019, Sound Transit started working with local partners and the community to identify potential access improvements that would best meet the goal of increasing ridership on Sounder North. Sound Transit hosted an online open house and survey from March 19 to April 14, 2019, and held several events to inform the public about the project and gather feedback on priorities. You can find a summary of our spring 2019 outreach here.
 

Weekend Sounder train – Saturday, Oct 19

Sound Transit is running a Sounder special event train on Saturday, October 19 for the Sounders FC playoff match, 12:30pm at CenturyLink. 

You don’t have to attend the game to ride the train – take the opportunity to explore Seattle for a few hours without having to drive! Sounder arrives at King Street Station in historic Pioneer Square and is across the street from the International District-Chinatown Station for easy access to Link light rail. 

This train on October 19 is scheduled to arrive in Seattle from the north at 10:44am and will depart Seattle 35 minutes after the match ends. For more tips on weekend Sounder trains, check our blog post
