Publish Date

U.S. Senator Patty Murray will join local officials Wednesday December 11 for the groundbreaking of Sound Transit's permanent Tacoma Dome Sounder Station at Freighthouse Square.

Tacoma Dome Station is one of the most important facilities in the entire Sound Transit network.

Local Pierce Transit bus service, Greyhound and Amtrak are also accessible, making Tacoma Dome Station a true multi-modal facility.
