Lower Sounder commuter train fares take effect March 1

ORCA LIFT, Youth and Regional Reduced Fare permit holders will be able to ride Sounder at a new, reduced fare starting Monday, March 1.

The new fares will make Sounder more accessible and simplify Sound Transit’s fares system-wide by bringing Sounder fares in line with Link light rail and ST Express bus fares for these customer groups.

There is no change to regular adult fares on Sounder.
