Sounder train

notice
In June of 2022, Sound Transit closed the fifth and sixth floors of the Auburn garage because inspections showed the need for concrete deck repairs on the upper floor.

Affected lines:
S Line
notice
Due to safety concerns, bicycles are restricted on certain Sounder cars until further notice.

Only four bicycles are allowed per train car. Cyclists may only enter Sounder trains through doors with a bicycle symbol. Always follow any directions from the conductor.

Each Sounder train car has two tie-down spaces for cyclists to secure their bicycles. If the tie-down spaces are occupied, two additional cyclists may stand with their bikes. When standing with your bicycle, stand by the doors near the tie-down area. Restrain your bike with one hand and hold on to a secure pole with the other. Do not lean, or secure, your bicycle to other secured bicycles. Remember, you may need to move your bicycle, so other riders can move about the train.

Thank you.
