Lakewood Station Access Improvements

Sounder train arriving at Lakewood Station

 

Overview

Sound Transit’s Sounder train service gives Pierce County residents a dependable, traffic-free commute to and from Seattle. Seven round-trip trains run every weekday between Lakewood and Seattle. Sounder also runs special service to select weekend sporting events, conventions and celebrations. A smooth, comfy, Wi-Fi-enabled trip from Lakewood Station to Seattle’s King Street Station takes about 75 minutes. In addition, several ST Express bus routes serve Lakewood Station,  including Route 580 (Puyallup - Lakewood), 592 (Dupont - Seattle) and 594 (Lakewood/Tacoma-Seattle).We want to make it easier for Pierce County residents to take advantage of Sounder and regional bus service.

The Lakewood Station Access Improvements project, approved by voters in 2008, will improve access to the station. This could mean investments in safer walking, rolling and bicycling connections with surrounding neighborhoods; better pick-up and drop-off areas; additional station lighting and weather shelters; parking options and more.
