Is Tacoma a town where I'll need a car to get to work?
Tacoma has an amazing selection of public transportation so it would be surprising if you did need a car to get to work. Between buses, commuter rail, light rail and ferries, it makes sense to commute on one of them rather than get into congested traffic.
