If you ride often to the same station, you can rent a bike locker for an annual $50 non-refundable rental fee plus a one-time refundable $50 key deposit. Lockers are very popular, so please contact us directly to ask about availability at specific locations. Call 1-888-889-6368 | TTY Relay: 711 for locker availability.

If a locker is available, download and complete the Sound Transit Bicycle Locker User Agreement. Mail the completed form to Rebecca Roush, 401 S. Jackson St., Seattle, WA 98104. Bicycle lockers at Tacoma Dome Station are managed by Pierce Transit; call 253-581-8000 or 1-800-562-8109 for details.
