Our customers count on quick access to reliable parking at our park-and-rides. Yet many tell us it’s getting harder to find spaces, especially as more people use transit.
We also know some of our park-and-ride spots are being filled by people who aren’t there to catch a bus, vanpool, or carpool—instead, they’re going to nearby businesses, apartments, or construction sites.
Metro is now looking at a range of options to improve management of parking at our lots and garages, and we want your input.
One option might be permits for priority parking for carpoolers, similar to a program Sound Transit will roll out this fall.
We’d like your thoughts about permit parking, as well as any other ideas to help us better manage parking at our park-and-rides.
The deadline for comments is Friday, August 19.
