The Taco­ma Link light rail is cur­rent­ly a 1.6‑mile light rail line start­ing at the Taco­ma Dome Sta­tion and end­ing at the The­ater Dis­trict on South 9th Street – and is free to ride!

Catch the Sounder Train at the Taco­ma Dome Sta­tion north­bound to Seat­tle – it’s con­ve­nient, cheap (about $5 to ride) and less of a has­sle than sit­ting in I‑5 traf­fic for events or com­mut­ing!
