Parks and ride at TCC sets to open Oct. 8


The Tacoma Community College Transit Center and Park & Ride, located at South 19th and Mildred streets, closed Aug. 6 for much-needed repairs and improvements. The Park & Ride will reopen Oct. 8, when transit riders will find:

  • Upgraded LED lighting for enhanced visibility and safety;
  • Shelter renovations, including new roofs, new paint and enhanced lighting;
  • New seats, with additional seating added for customer comfort;
  • Updated curb ramps and sidewalks;
  • Newly-numbered parking stalls, making it easier for people to find their cars at the end of the day; and
  • New, brightly-painted parking stall striping, which will help people better see stall outlines and avoid two-spot parking.

The project was completed within the estimated time frame, and is on budget at about $1.5 million. Starting Oct. 8, commuters who ride the following routes can again park at the lot and catch their buses at the transit center there: Pierce Transit routes 1, 2, 10, 16, 28, 52, 53 and 100, as well as Sound Transit Route 595.
