Seahawks train canceled for Sunday

Friday, December 26, 2014

Another mudslide on tracks between Everett and Mukilteo halted Sounder train service on Christmas Eve. Service for commuter runs has not yet been resumed. Riders are advised to monitor online alerts for updates to Sounder Northline service prior to Monday’s commute.

Now, after carefully monitoring the weather forecasts and soil conditions, Sound Transit has made the decision to cancel Sounder Northline (Everett – Seattle) service for Sunday, December 28th to the Seattle Seahawks game.

They fear that the forecast for more rain and resulting slope conditions will increase the chance of a mudslide. Also, they say that the limited availability of back-up charter bus service for Edmonds and Mukilteo passengers would make game day travel difficult.

"We made this decision in advance to give our riders as much notice as possible to plan alternate game day travel. For regularly scheduled bus options to the game please visit Sound Transit’s Event Services page or use the online Trip Planner on our home page."

If you have already purchased a Sounder ticket for Sunday’s game you are advised to visit Ticket Vending Machine problems to fill out an online resolution form.
