Take the train and skip the traffic pain.

The Sounder Train can take you to Washington State Fair. And back.

The train also runs to some Mariners games.

The train runs to the fair on two Saturdays, Sept. 13 and 20. The Sounder Train Fair Express Pack includes round-trip Sounder fare and Washington State Fair gate admission. Tickets are adult $16 for adults and $11.25 for ages 6 to 18 years. Ages 5 and under are free.

In Snohomish County, the train leaves Everett at 8:55 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., with pickup stops in Mukilteo at 9:07 a.m. and 10:42 a.m., and in Edmonds at 9:22 a.m. and 10:57 a.m.

The return train from Puyallup is at either 6:30 p.m. or 8 p.m.

Shuttle service from Puyallup Station to the fair is free.

Another way to get to the fair, which is Sept. 5 through 21, is by bus. The Sound Transit Express Route 578 runs every day between Seattle and Puyallup. Buses run daily from Snohomish County transit centers to Seattle.

Sounder trains also serve Mariners games on Sept. 14 and 28. On both days, the train leaves Everett at 11:15 a.m., with pickup stops at 11:26 a.m. in Mukilteo and 11:41 a.m. in Edmonds, arriving in Seattle at 12:14 p.m.

A schedule of game day train service is available at soundtransit.org/Schedules/Event-services.

Many ST Express buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/Schedules.
