Tacoma Dome Station is a train station and transit hub in Tacoma, Washington. It is served by Sounder commuter rail and Tacoma Link light rail, as well as local and intercity buses. Located near the Tacoma Dome south of Downtown Tacoma, the station consists of two train platforms used by Sounder that will eventually be shared with Amtrak trains, a platform for Tacoma Link, a bus terminal, and two parking garages. The Sounder station is integrated into Freighthouse Square, a former Milwaukee Road depot that was converted into a shopping mall, and is on the east side of the Amtrak station.
The Tacoma Dome Station complex was constructed and opened in phases from 1997 to 2017. The parking garage and bus terminal were opened in 1997. Sounder service began in September 2000, followed by Tacoma Link in August 2003, and a permanent platform for Sounder was opened in September 2003. Amtrak service briefly began on December 18, 2017, after the opening of the Point Defiance Bypass, replacing a nearby station. However, after a derailment that day, Amtrak indefinitely rerouted trains back to the old station. By 2030, an extension of the Link light rail system will connect Tacoma Dome Station to Federal Way, Seattle–Tacoma International Airport, and Downtown Seattle.
