Public Transportation

Tacoma can be reached by Plane, Train, or Bus. Amtrak trains and Greyhound buses go through Tacoma, and many airlines serve Sea-Tac Airport. These can be consulted regarding schedules.

The Amtrak Station and Greyhound Station are within a few miles of each other on Puyallup Avenue in Tacoma.

There is a bus to and from Sea-Tac Airport (Sound Transit route 574) which runs approximately every half hour. There is a bus stop for this line at the south end of the airport just outside level 1. The bus from the airport stops at the Tacoma Dome Station (also on Puyallup Avenue); the ride takes approximately 40-45 minutes. The fare is $3.75 each way.
All Sound Transit buses are fully accessible with wheelchair lifts and ramps. There is designated seating for senior adults and people with disabilities.

We will have volunteers ready to meet you at the Amtrak Station, Greyhound Station, or Tacoma Dome Station and take you to the University. They will also return you to the appropriate station on Sunday. Be sure to give us your schedule information on your registration form if you want to be met. People with disabilities who would find the public transportation option from the airport a burden will be transported in private vehicles to and from the airport. Please let us know of your arrival time and needs.
