The Tacoma Dome District (the District) is positioned to attract a significant part of anticipated population growth in the Tacoma metropolitan area and the region. Decisions made today will help determine who lives here now and in
the future, how they live, and how visitors spend their money. The District is the state’s foremost transit hub. It is served by Sound Transit commuter rail and Pierce Transit buses. It is the terminus of Tacoma’s own light rail line, Tacoma Link. In addition to these services, the District has regional connections that bring intercity transit-riders from Thurston, King, and Kitsap Counties and interstate transit services provided by AMTRAK and Greyhound.
The arrival of (Pierce Transit) Bus Rapid Transit in 2022 and Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail Extension in 2030 will multiply visitor numbers. The light rail extension will also provide a convenient alternative to driving for eventgoers arriving from cities to the north, connecting the Tacoma Dome to the regional light rail network with direct access to SeaTac Airport and Seattle.
