*Standard parking rates:

* The rates for the parking system at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center will be increasing to $6 for four hours or less, and $12 for parking stays in excess of four hours, effective January 2, 2017.

 The last revision in parking rates occurred more than ten years ago. Due to increased demand for parking in the market and additional operations and maintenance expenses, it is necessary to increase rates.

The Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center and the City of Tacoma remain committed to providing a positive parking experience for all users. We have recently implemented an improved pre-payment system to ease congestion and expedite exit times, and increased the number of electronic multi-pay stations available.

We appreciate our relationships with our clients, patrons and guests, and look forward to continuing to provide excellent service. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Alternate Off-Site Parking options include street parking, downtown Tacoma parking lots, and the Tacoma Dome Station Transit Garage serviced by Link Light Rail.

Tacoma's Free Link Light Rail runs frequently throughout the downtown corridor with a stop located just outside the GTCTC on Commerce Street.
