One rider: Sounder seemed less crowded today

Posted by Cory Tolbert Haik

Janica Lockhart, a copy desk resident at the Seattle Times, reports on her Sounder commute this morning:

I left my house in North Auburn at 6:25 a.m. to catch the 6:52 a.m. train at Kent Station to King Street Station. Traffic was heavy through Auburn and Kent on Auburn Way North and Central Avenue, so I made it to the train station five minutes later than usual. I was able to catch the 6:52 a.m. train. Only a few people were left standing in the first car from Kent to King Street Station and it seemed less crowded than yesterday. The train arrived on time and I was able to catch my bus, Metro #70, to the downtown Seattle office and made it to work on time.
