To encourage transit riders to travel together to their buses and trains, Sound Transit will begin offering carpool permit parking at some of its busiest park-and-ride facilities.
Riders can apply now for an November permit to park at Tukwila Station, Kent Station, Auburn Station, Sumner Station, Puyallup Station, Angle Lake Station in SeaTac or Tukwila International Boulevard Station. For $5 per month, carpool permits allow regular transit commuters to access priority parking at the most popular parking facilities.
If you carpool to a transit facility and transfer to a bus or train at least three days each week, you may be eligible for a carpool parking permit. Two or more carpool members can apply together by visiting the permit application portal, selecting your preferred parking facility, entering names, contact information and ORCA card numbers.
To learn how to get an ORCA card, visit orcacard.com. If you currently drive alone to a park-and-ride, visit RideshareOnline.com for help forming a carpool.
