Every week, we’ve been mapping homes for sale along various transit lines. But since it’s Transportation Week, we’re doing something a little different: One home near every stop of the southern journey of the Sound Transit Sounder train, many within walking distance.
This weekday commuter train—and occasional weekend sportsfan train—primarily brings suburban commuters with office schedules to and from downtown Seattle. It first departs Lakewood every weekday starting at 4:41 a.m.
Along the way, it picks up travelers in Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent, and Tukwila before stopping by King Street Station in Seattle.
The route’s so popular that starting this month, Sound Transit is adding more trips.
Most trains start heading back to Tacoma mid-afternoon through early evening—although unlike many commuter routes, the train does leave a few options for people going the opposite direction.
We’ve found a home for each stop along the route, King Street Station excluded.
It’s Curbed’s first-ever Transportation Week! This week is all about how we get around in our favorite cities. Check out all of Curbed’s Transportation Week coverage here.Read More
