East Tacoma Community Office Hours Cancelled

Due to the inclement weather forecast for this weekend, the Eastside Tacoma Community Office Hours at the Tacoma Public Library (Mottet Branch) that was scheduled on Saturday February 9th will be cancelled. Staff will work on planning another one in the coming months and will send an update. 

More about TDLE
The voter-approved system expansion extends regional light rail from Federal Way Transit Center to the Tacoma Dome Station area, with four stations at South Federal Way, Fife, East Tacoma and Tacoma Dome. Door-to-door, this project will mean 35 minutes from Tacoma Dome to SeaTac Airport; light rail will allow you to reliably fly through traffic. Light rail operations are expected to begin in 2030.

More about OMF South
To serve the expanding regional Link light rail system, additional operations and maintenance facilities (OMF) are needed to efficiently operate the long-term light rail vehicle fleet. The central OMF in Seattle is in operation now, the east location is under construction in Bellevue, and two new facilities are needed in the north and south. The OMF South will support overall light rail system expansion.

Link vehicles must be cleaned and stored every night and regularly pulled out of service to perform maintenance. Operations and maintenance facilities support efficient light rail operations and station maintenance.
