Tacoma to seattle commute time

Tacoma to seattle commute time DEFAULT

Thousands of people who live in Pierce County commute to King County (and more specifically Seattle and Bellevue) for work each day, and this number is only going to increase over time. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic when more people are working from home, commuting is still a must for many people, and those in Pierce County who do the Seattle commute know that traffic already feels like it’s back to normal (“normal” meaning pre-COVID times).

Transit options in the Puget Sound area are expanding, but it’s just not fast enough for the need. So if you live in Pierce County and you need to commute to Seattle or the Eastside (which includes cities like Bellevue, Redmond, Factoria, Kirkland, etc.), then your commute is definitely going to affect where you decide to live. And where you choose to live will affect what commuting and transit options you have available to you.

Here are the best neighborhoods in the Pierce County and Greater Tacoma Area to live in based on commute type:

Sounder 1509

Commute to Seattle via The Sounder Train 

Sound Transit’s Sounder Train is a big deal in the Puget Sound region. This commuter train serves thousands of people each day, which in turn gets cars off the roads (less traffic!) and gives commuters a traffic-free way to get into Seattle and back home. Many commuters are able to relax, catch up on reading, and even start and end their workdays on the train (in fact, some employers are totally cool with you clocking in while you’re still on the train).

If the Sounder Train sounds like a desirable way to get to and from work in Seattle, then living close to a station is a must. You should also keep in mind that most Sounder Stations also have bus service, with buses usually running more frequently than the train.

Here are cities and neighborhoods in Pierce County and the Greater Tacoma area that will allow you to live close to a station:

Downtown Tacoma

The Tacoma Dome Station is super accessible from Downtown Tacoma. There are parking garages if you need to drive, you can hop on a bus to the Tacoma Dome Station, and the Tacoma Link light rail is another popular option. You can hop on it at several points throughout Downtown Tacoma and take it straight to the Tacoma Dome Station. In coming years, the Tacoma Link light rail is also expanding quite a bit, making it even easier to connect to the Tacoma Dome Station (and therefore Seattle) in a car-free way.

Hilltop Neighborhood in Tacoma

Located just west of Downtown, Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood offers a centralized neighborhood that’s close to many of Tacoma’s best amenities, including Tacoma Dome Station. If you lived on the easternmost edge of Hilltop you could be as close as 0.8 miles to the Tacoma Dome Station, and the upcoming Tacoma Link Light Rail expansion connects Hilltop to the Tacoma Dome Station even more.

McKinley Neighborhood in Tacoma’s Eastside

Tacoma’s McKinley neighborhood in the Eastside is immediately south of the Tacoma Dome station and Interstate-5. In McKinley you could live as close as 0.6 miles to the Tacoma Dome station, even giving you the option to walk or bike. You can also hop on a bus to the station.

Lincoln District Neighborhood in Tacoma 

Located immediately south of Downtown Tacoma and Hilltop, Tacoma’s Lincoln District neighborhood is a top choice for those who need access to the Tacoma Dome Station. In the Lincoln District you could live as close as 0.9 mile to the Tacoma Dome Station.

South Tacoma

There is also another Sounder Train Station in South Tacoma. This opens up even more housing options if you need to be in close proximity to the train.

Lakewood

The Lakewood Station is currently the southernmost Sounder Station, and there are plans to expand the train to DuPont in the future. There are 600 parking spaces at the Lakewood Station making it easy to park and ride the rails.

Downtown Puyallup

Downtown Puyallup also has its own Sounder Train Station, and it’s surrounded by Downtown Puyallup’s historic charm and also housing. You could potentially live just a few blocks from the Puyallup Station, suddenly making a Seattle commute totally doable.

Sumner

Sumner is another popular place to live for people who commute to Seattle but want those “small town” vibes. Sumner Station has 302 parking spaces, and there is residential housing merely blocks from the station.

Commute to Seattle via The Ferry

Gig Harbor

Can you live in Gig Harbor and commute to Seattle? Yes you can, and if you’re willing to have a slower commute (but the most gorgeous commute possible), you can take the Southworth – Fauntleroy Ferry over to Seattle. The Southworth Ferry is north of Gig Harbor, so if you’re considering the ferry as a possibility, living in Gig Harbor North will cut down your commute. The ferry drops off in West Seattle, which to be honest if you have to get to Downtown Seattle is a little tricky (as of the writing of this post in 2020) because of the West Seattle bridge closure. But it won’t be closed forever, and it’s especially not a huge deal if you get to work from home a lot and only need to go into the office every now and then.

Commute to Seattle via Car

Commuting to Seattle via car is of course always an option, and it’s what thousands of people choose to do everyday. Because of this, traffic can be hard during rush hour, but it’s also doable. These Pierce County and Greater Tacoma cities are the best options for commuting to Seattle via car:

Browns Point

Browns Point in Tacoma is the most northernmost neighborhood you can live in and still be in Tacoma. During good traffic it’s about a 45-minute drive from the heart of Browns Point to Pike Place Market in Seattle (which we’re just using as a reference point here since it’s in the heart of Downtown Seattle).

Tacoma’s Old Town & Proctor Neighborhood

If you live in the North End of Tacoma (especially in the Old Town and Proctor neighborhoods), you can take North 30th Street heading east to hop onto Schuster Parkway which then becomes Interstate-705 and connects to Interstate-5. When you’re coming down North 30th Street you have an absolutely incredible view of Commencement Bay, and Schuster Park is also filled with big views of the Bay and Port of Tacoma.

Tacoma’s Eastside Neighborhood 

Tacoma’s Eastside encapsulates several smaller neighborhoods, but the important thing here is that the Eastside is pretty much surrounded by Interstate-5 making it easy to hop on and off.

Fife

The city of Fife is another excellent option, in part because it’s right on Interstate-5. You can live in Fife and not worry about the traffic jam that inevitably always happens by the Tacoma Dome and in good traffic you can drive to Downtown Seattle in 30 minutes.

Milton

Milton’s big advantage is also the fact it offers easy access to Interstate-5 while bypassing the Tacoma Dome traffic jam. In good traffic Milton is about a 36-minute drive to Seattle.

Edgewood

Edgewood offers quick access to Interstate-5 and in good traffic is also only about ~37  minutes to Downtown Seattle.

Lake Tapps

Lake Tapps offers easy access to Highway 167, which offers a few opportunities to connect to Interstate-5 to get into Downtown Seattle. Lake Tapps is also a great option if you need to get to the Eastside—you can take Highway 167 up and connect to I-405 to get to cities like Bellevue and Redmond. Lake Tapps is also in between Sumner and Auburn, meaning you could also park at each city’s train stations and take the train to Seattle.

Tacoma’s Midland Area 

Midland is especially unique in that you have easy access to Interstate-5 and it’s one of the few places in Pierce County where you can own a home on some land. This is perfect if you just want to be spread out more or if you have farm animals yet still need to commute to Seattle.


BONUS: Commute to Seattle via Link Light Rail

The Link Light Rail currently runs from Angle Lake (which is just before the Sea-Tac International Airport Station) north to University of Washington Stadium Station, and there are some big expansions in the works.

First of all, the Link Light Rail is expanding to connect the International District Station in Seattle to the Eastside, with stops coming to top commuter destinations like Downtown Bellevue and Redmond (a definite perk for Microsoft employees!).

Secondly, the Link Light Rail will finally connect between Tacoma and Seattle. Suddenly it will be a lot easier to have another train option to commute to Seattle, but ALSO to cities on Seattle’ Eastside and SeaTac International Airport.

Federal Way 

Part of this Link Light Rail expansion will include a stop at the South Federal Way Station, making it a lot easier to live in Federal Way and enjoy a car-free option to commute to Seattle.

Fife 

Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail will also have a stop in Fife, opening up more options to live in Fife and have a car-free commute to Seattle as well.

Seattle day-trip from Tacoma via ferry or train

Getting to Seattle from Tacoma via ferry or train

Tacoma and Pierce County hotels offer incredible affordability, right the heart of a cultural urban hub with walkable attractions, nightlife and dining. 

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a truly unique day by taking a Washington State Ferry, or a local train to also get the full Seattle experience.

Sounder Train in Seattle

Seattle day-trip by train

Getting to Seattle by train:

You have two great options for getting to Seattle by train, you can mix and match the two to have the most flexibility.

Sounder train: If you want to feel like a local ride Sound Transit’s Sounder train (Sounder Lakewood - Seattle Route). Sounder trains leave frequently Monday -Friday. Board  in the early morning (prior to 8 a.m.) from the Tacoma Dome Station at Freighthouse Square. These trains can be crowded but only take about an hour. Check the schedule for its later train (typically leaves Tacoma Dome Station around 10:30 a.m.) for a more relaxed ride. 

Amtrak Cascades

Amtrak Cascade: Amtrak’s Cascade train offers less frequent, but faster service to Seattle. Check schedules and catch the Amtrak train from Tacoma’s Amtrak Station.

Getting back to Tacoma in the evening

Sounder service runs frequently until about 6:30 p.m. Amtrak offers 2 trains in the early afternoon for your ride back.

Seattle day-trip by bus

If you're a night owl, or just want maximum flexibility in your schedule Sound Transit's bus route 594 runs until the wee hours of the night, and offer a comfortable, express route ride to the Tacoma Dome Station and typically only takes a little over an 1 hour depending on traffic. This is also the least expensive option. 

Washington State Ferry Cathlamet Departing Vashon Island

Seattle day-trip by ferry

Experience this iconic way of getting around in the Puget Sound region, our Washington State Ferries. With boarding this trip could take up to 2 hours each way. But the experience, views and taste of Puget Sound Island life make it worth it. 

Washington State Ferries: Getting to Seattle to Tacoma by Ferry is an adventure that can take you places. There is currently no direct ferry from Tacoma to Seattle, but going by way of Vashon Island lets you see one of the Puget Sound's stunning islands while driving into Seattle.  A car is the fastest way to aid this journey. Be sure to get to the ferry dock 15 minutes early to assure a space for your car onboard. 

Point Defiance/ Tahlequah (15 minute crossing) : Drive onto the ferry that leaves from the boat launch at Point Defiance Park and goes to Tahlequah (on Vashon Island). Ferries typically leave every hour. 

Drive across Vashon Island on Vashon Hwy SW (13 miles) to enjoy the vistas of the Puget Sound. There is also bus service with King County Metro. 

Board the Vashon/Fauntleroy Ferry (20 minute direct) on the north end of Vashon island to get to Fauntleroy in West Seattle, just 8 miles from downtown. Now you're ready to make the most out of the day. 

Seattle day-trip by car

By far the most flexible option to get from Tacoma to Seattle is by car. Interstate 5 is a straight show between the two cities and just over 30 miles. Uber and Lyft services are available in both cities, and are also an option and average $50 one-way. Traffic can put a slow down during commuting hours, and its recommended you avoid traveling south from Seattle Friday afternoons.
