Easy and convenient access!

Auburn is at the hub of the regional transportation network. Bisected by two regional highways and freight and commuter railways, thousands of goods and people travel through Auburn everyday. From Auburn, it is an easy connection to Interstates 5, 405 and 90. For businesses, Auburn is literally steps away from access to the Pacific Rim trade. These businesses value that Auburn is only 15 miles from Sea-Tac International Airport, just 15 miles from the Port of Tacoma and just 20 miles from the Port of Seattle. To top it off, Auburn Municipal Airport is the third busiest commuter airport in the State of Washington.

Located in downtown Auburn, the Auburn Sounder Station provides access to Sounder Commuter Rail, Sound Transit Express Bus service and King County Metro Transit service. Commuters can find an easy place to park their car in the existing 676-stall parking garage at the station.

Auburn is served by two major rail services, BNSF and Union Pacific, and currently the City is working with its regional partners to establish service through an Amtrak Station stop at our Sounder Station.
