Tacoma's Free Light Rail Train

Tacoma offers a free light rail train service, which runs throughout the downtown corridor. The light rail train runs every ten minutes, regularly from 6:00am to 8:00pm, Monday- Friday, Saturday 8:00 am-10:00pm and Sunday 10:00am - 8:00pm. A convention center light rail stop is located just outside the first floor of our facility (on Commerce Street) for convenient access throughout downtown Tacoma. View and print the full light rail route map.
