About Tacoma Dome

Click on the pink tabs above to view more details about the initial routes and stations under consideration. Public feedback will be shared with the project Elected Leadership Group, who will make recommendations to the Sound Transit Board for options that will continue through the alternatives development process.

  • Sound Transit looked at four alignment families and five individual station alternatives based on spring 2018 public input.
  • This station will connect to the existing Tacoma Dome Station and other transit services such as Amtrak, Greyhound and Sounder.

The project team’s initial analysis shows which stations and alignments have more potential or more challenges in the table below. Stations and alignments are being compared to each other in this station area, not to all stations and alignments along the corridor.

Alternatives Reasons
Alternatives with more potential 

TD 1

  • Most opportunities for housing and business development near station
  • More convenient access for people walking, biking, taking transit or driving

TD 2

TD 3

  • Most convenient access for people walking, biking, taking transit or driving
  • More opportunities for housing and business development near station

TD 4 [2 alternative routes]

  • Least challenging to extend future line to Tacoma Mall under I-705
  • Has more direct access to Tacoma Dome
Alternatives with greater challenges 

TD 5 [2 alternative routes]

  • Least convenient access to multimodal transportation center
  • Constructability challenges through steep slope area
  • Lower potential for housing and business development near station
