The best way to travel from King County to The Fair!

Do the Puyallup! Special Sounder trains will run on two Saturdays, Sept. 16 & 23, serving nine stations between Everett and Puyallup. From Puyallup Station, you can jump on a free Pierce Transit shuttle bus to the Fair’s Red Gate.
Two trains will take passengers between the Snohomish County stations of Everett, Mukilteo and Edmonds and Seattle’s King Street Station. Snohomish County passengers will change trains at King Street Station, crossing the platform (just a few steps away) to board trains that stop in Tukwila, Kent, Auburn and Sumner before reaching their Puyallup Station destination. Three round-trip trains will run between Seattle and Puyallup.

After the Fair, head to the Fair’s Red Gate to take the shuttle back to Puyallup Station. Getting home, allow yourself plenty of time to catch the train at Puyallup Station.

To return by train, there are two options, with trains leaving Puyallup Station at 5:50pm and 6:50pm.
