Tacoma Dome Station is a transportation hub in the city of Tacoma, Washington, served by Sounder commuter rail, Tacoma Link light rail, Greyhound buses, Intercity Transit buses, Pierce Transit buses, and Sound Transit Express buses.

The station was built in phases by Sound Transit along Tacoma Rail tracks in downtown Tacoma. Commuter rail trains first started running between the station and downtown Seattle on September 18, 2000.

The station complex is centered around the existing Freighthouse Square, a former Milwaukee Road freight station built in 1909 that was later redeveloped into a shopping center. A portion of the building was remodeled in the late 1990's to serve Sounder passengers. In 2016, the portion of the building was torn down to build a new station that will serve passengers on Amtrak Cascades and Coast Starlight trains that are expected to begin serving the station in fall 2017.[1]

From 2000 to 2012, Tacoma Dome Station served as the southern terminus of the Sounder south line.
