The project collects thoughts on the area’s current strengths and uses and envisions what the space could be moving forward. Your input will influence the city of Federal Way’s vision of the station area. The online open house is available through December 15.

What is OMF South? 

Sound Transit’s new Operations and Maintenance facility (OMF) in South King County will be essential for the Link light rail expansion Puget Sound voters approved in 2016. We need this facility to store and service our growing fleet of clean, quiet, efficient electric trains as regional light rail expands from Seattle to Tacoma.

Because safety is Sound Transit’s top priority, we suspend service every night between 1-5 a.m. so staff can clean trains and inspect light rail tracks. That means an OMF operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Sound Transit currently operates a central light rail Operations and Maintenance facility (OMF) in Seattle, and we’re building another in Bellevue. We’ll also build a fourth facility north of Seattle. 

The OMF South will create more than 300 living-wage jobs when it opens in 2026.
