Tacoma Dome Station Parking Renovation

Work begins March 2018

After 20 years of operation, Tacoma Dome Station is in need of repairs and improvements. We are happy to report that coming soon you will experience improved lighting, better signage, repaired concrete, fresh paint and a general clean-up at this important transit hub.

The extensive work will begin on March 12, 2018 and take about one year to complete. During that time, approximately 200 parking stalls will be blocked off on a rotating basis to conduct the work. The affected stalls will shift throughout the east and west towers and impact each floor at some point during the project. Signage will be posted at Tacoma Dome Station before and during the work.

Since this is already a very popular parking location, you may experience a more challenging time finding an empty parking stall while the work is underway. We sincerely thank you for your patience as we make these important repairs and improvements.


NOTICE!!!!

Effective Monday, August 13th, parking availability in the West Garage of Tacoma Dome Station will change as well as how to enter the West Garage. Parking Level 2 will be completely closed as well as the E Street entrance and Parking Level 3 will be re-opened. Levels 3 thru 7 can be accessed from the East Garage passageway on Level 6; West Garage Level 1 can be accessed from the West Garage Puyallup Street entrance. East Garage Level 1 thru 6 can be accessed from the West Garage Puyallup Street entrance or S. 25th Street entrance. These changes are necessary as we continue to make progress on the much-needed Mid-Life repairs at the facility. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Please also note the City is making improvements to the intersection of S. 25th and G Street that may add to the congestion as they direct traffic through their project. Please allow for extra time to navigate around the construction.


While the work is going on, here are alternate parking options for you to consider:

TDS Lot 1

There are 48 free stalls and approximately 20 pay parking stalls available in the lot immediately east of Tacoma Dome Station at 704 Puyallup Ave., opposite the Tacoma Dome Station bus loading area and clock tower.

NOTICE: This lot is closing effective May 31st. We are working diligently to provide alternative parking in the vicinity. Additional information will be posted here as soon as an update is available. We apologize for this unforeseen situation.

TDS Lot 2There is a daily pay parking lot to the west of Tacoma Dome Station on Puyallup Ave., under I-705.

TDS Lot 3

The Tacoma Dome is opening its "A" lot on East D St. and E. 27th St. to the public for monthly parking. People using this option should be aware that parking will not be available on some dates due to events at the Tacoma Dome. Those dates will be posted on site in advance. For more information about parking at the Tacoma Dome “A” Lot, please visit www.rpnw.com call 253.627.4401.

Trip Planner Tips - Entering Locations

To create a trip plan you need to enter both a starting location (origin) and an ending location (destination). For information about stops, schedules, or service at a specific location, you only need to enter one location.

The Trip Planner recognizes most street intersections and addresses as well as many landmarks in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties. If what you entered is not immediately recognized, the Trip Planner will offer you a list of options. You can choose one of the options, but if your intended location is not there, select the "Revise Original Entries" link to return to the entry page and change the entries you have already made.

Addresses

  • You don't need to type in the city along with the address. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type 110 Jones instead of 110 Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 1000 Main instead of 1000 S Main. But type 1000 West Viewmont for 1000 West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets and addresses are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby location, such as an intersection or a landmark.
  • You should not enter the suite number or apartment number.  Just the house number and street name (Example: type in 401 Broadway instead of 401 Broadway Avenue Suite 800).

Intersections

  • The "&" symbol is the only character used between two street names to show an intersection. (Examples: 1st & B, James & Madison)
  • You don't need to type in the city. The Trip Planner shows the possible city names as options if needed. City names are based on zip codes.
  • You don't need to type in St., Street, Ave., or Avenue, or similar street types. The Trip Planner shows the possible alternatives as options if needed. (Example: type Conifer & Jones instead of Conifer Circle & Jones Boulevard.)
  • You don't need to type in the directional designations for streets, but if a direction name is part of a street name, you should include it. (Example: type 3rd & Main instead of 3rd S & S Main. But type 34th & West Viewmont for 34th W & West Viewmont Way W.)
  • Some streets are unknown to the Trip Planner. You may need to enter another nearby intersection or a landmark.
