Ride The Sounder Train!

Avoid the commute and post-show traffic! Relax with your friends or your Valentine on the Sounder.  

On Feb. 14, Sounder will operate a late night train from Tacoma Dome to Seattle. Just snag one of the 10 regular evening commute trains to Tacoma between 2:30–6:30pm. If your pre-show plans are in downtown Tacoma, hop on the FREE Tacoma Link light rail to shuttle you between the Tacoma Dome and downtown Tacoma.

To return home after the concert, make sure to be at Tacoma Dome Station by 11:15pm for a fast, traffic-free trip back to Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent, Tukwila or Seattle. Save time and buy a round-trip ticket at your originating station or ahead of time on the TransitGo Ticket App.
