Heavy rainfall, landslide risk prompts Sounder cancellations

Sound Transit suspended commuter rail service between Everett and Seattle through the week.

EDMONDS — Commuters who rely on the Sounder will need to find another way to travel this week.

The commuter rail service operated by Sound Transit between Everett and Seattle again has been canceled by the threat of landslides for today’s afternoon trips. High rainfall in the forecast, borne by the atmospheric river, prompted the transit agency to suspend the train service.

Buses to and from Seattle will operate from each station at regularly scheduled Sounder departure times. Other bus service is available between Edmonds and Seattle via the Community Transit 416, Everett and Seattle via the Sound Transit Express 510/512, and between Mukilteo and Seattle via the Community Transit 417.
