Sounder Commuter Train for Orting

The Sounder Commuter Train, a mass transit light rail that runs from Tacoma to Seattle, has become a huge success as well as a commuting relief for residents of Pierce County. With median home prices lower in Pierce County than they are in King County, many Washingtonians have chosen to move south to one of Pierce County’s communities and travel north daily to their jobs.

A number of home buyers in Pierce County make a point of looking for homes in the proximity of a Sounder station. Because Orting doesn’t have its own station, these buyers may tend to exclude the town from their property search.

In fact, Orting is a great location for King County workers to call home. Not only are prices much lower than in King County, but the nearest Sounder station is closer than they might think.

The Sumner Sounder station is about an 8 mile trip from Orting, with the vast majority of driving done along a straight stretch of Highway 162. Depending on the commute time, Orting residents could reach the Sumner Sounder station within 10-15 minutes of leaving their home, giving them a stress-free daily commute.
