Status of Portland Avenue route and station alternatives
The Tacoma Segment of the project will have two stations: at Portland Avenue and the Tacoma Dome. We’re studying the following alternatives in the Portland Avenue area:
- (Preferred) Tacoma 25th Street-West
- Portland Avenue Design Option
- Portland Avenue Station
- Portland Avenue Span Station Option
Check out progress on the Portland Avenue station design concepts
Key station design concept components of the Portland Avenue station include:
- Bus transfer area: Four bus stops beneath or near the station platform for easy transit connections
- Bicycle storage: Racks and lockers located under the station platform
- Pick-up/drop-off spaces: Short-term parking areas located near the station platform
The following station design concepts show how people may get to the station by bicycle (in green), as a pedestrian (in blue) and by bus (in red). Check out the diagrams, then share your comments on how people will come and go from the station as well as the station design concepts themselves.

Accessing Portland Avenue station via non-motorized modes (walking, rolling and bicycling)
To provide access for all future riders, we want to make sure there are safe and convenient walking, rolling and cycling routes between the Portland Avenue station and neighborhoods, businesses and community gathering places.
- The map and table show potential non-motorized access improvements for consideration and evaluation.
- Some non-motorized access improvements combine pedestrian and bicycle improvements, while others are only one or the other.
Whether you walk, bike or roll to your Link station, we will evaluate these non-motorized access projects with your convenience and safety in mind. Explore the map, leave comments and offer new ideas.
Learn more about the potential Portland Avenue Non-Motorized Access Improvement Projects
We are considering the following non-motorized access improvement projects for the Portland Avenue station. Sound Transit’s funding resources to implement these projects is limited, so the evaluation process will help us prioritize projects for each station area. Comment on as many or as few as you prefer.
