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. Eight round-trip trains run every weekday between Lakewood and Seattle, serving the South Tacoma Station. Sounder also runs special service to select weekend sporting events, conventions and celebrations. A smooth, comfy, Wi-Fi-enabled trip from South Tacoma Station to Seattle’s King Street Station takes about 70 minutes. 

As traffic congestion worsens across our region, we want to make it even easier for Pierce County residents to take advantage of Sounder service. The Lakewood Station Access Improvements project, approved by voters in 2008, will improve access to South Tacoma Station, whether you’re walking, biking, driving or riding local transit to Sounder.
