Photos ~ Inaugural reverse Sounder commute to Tacoma

Todd Matthews, of Tacoma Daily Index fame and a daily commuter from Seattle, took a journey on the first reverse Sounder train to Tacoma this morning. He liked the ride but not the arrival times. Here's a couple bullets.

Good things:

Not-so-good things:

Todd thinks that given time and perhaps a slightly more reasonable arrival time this option will be a success. Thanks for the perspective and photos, Todd, and happy commuting to you!
