Seven new T Line stations are about to open - and we're excited to add even more connections to Tacoma's transit network!
There are already amazing hubs in the city where passengers can connect to trains, buses, on-demand service, parking, biking and more.
One of these is Tacoma Dome Station. The station is served by:
- The T Line
- The Sounder S Line commuter train
- Amtrak trains
- Pierce Transit local buses and Runner on-demand service
- Sound Transit Express buses
Bus routes include the 13 to Proctor District, 41 to Downtown Tacoma and Tacoma Mall, 400 to Downtown Tacoma and to South Hill Mall, 500 to Federal Way and to Downtown Tacoma, 501 to Federal Way and to Downtown Tacoma, 574 to Sea-Tac Airport and to Lakewood, 590 to Seattle and to Downtown Tacoma, 594 to Seattle and to Lakewood, and 595 to Seattle and to Gig Harbor.
Another hub is at Commerce Street Station and Pacific Avenue.
Here, passengers can connect to Pierce Transit Runner, route 2 to Lakewood Transit Center, 3 to Lakewood Transit Center, 11 to Point Defiance, 16 to TCC Transit Center, 42 to 72nd St Transit Center, 57 to Tacoma Mall Transit Center, 63 to NE Tacoma Express as well as Routes 1, 13, 28, 48 and Routes 41, 400, 500, 501, 590 and 594.
Currently, T Line service ends at Commerce Street (to be renamed to Theater District). But when the extension opens, so will new stations at Old City Hall, S 4th, Stadium District, Tacoma General, 6th Avenue, Hilltop District and St. Joseph.
Sound Transit is coordinating with other transit agencies to make it easier for you to catch a bus to the nearest light rail station when new service starts. Check the Trip Planner for your most direct route, and learn how to transfer between services here.
ORCA is the easiest way to pay your fare - transfers are auto calculated, exact change isn't necessary and it's widely accepted, from light rail to ferries.
And an ORCA card is the only way to pay for transfers between different services such as trains, buses and streetcars.
As long as you transfer within 2 hours, your original fare will be credited toward the next leg of your journey.
So get an ORCA card and start exploring Tacoma via transit - new connections up to parks, hospitals, local businesses and more in the Stadium and Hilltop neighborhoods are coming very soon!
