Now you can take the Sounder train to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup
Sound Transit’s trains run on Saturdays, Sept. 19 and 26, serving nine stations between Everett and Puyallup, including Edmonds. Take a free shuttle between Puyallup station and the fairgrounds.
Due to popular demand, Sound Transit increased train capacity this year. Two five-car trains will take passengers between the Snohomish County stations of Everett, Mukilteo and Edmonds and Seattle’s King Street Station. Snohomish County passengers will change trains at King Street Station, crossing the platform (just a few steps away) to board seven-car trains that stop in Tukwila, Kent, Auburn and Sumner before reaching their Puyallup Station destination. Three round-trip trains will run between Seattle and Puyallup.
After the Fair, head to the Fair’s Red Gate to take the shuttle back to Puyallup Station. Allow yourself plenty of time to catch the train at Puyallup Station.
Snohomish County riders: To return by train, you must take one of the first two trains leaving Puyallup. The last train trip from Puyallup ends in Seattle.
