Learn More about Permit Parking

To encourage transit riders to travel together to their buses and trains, Sound Transit will begin offering carpool permit parking at its busiest lots and garages starting as early as fall 2016.

Carpool parking permits will become available to groups of two or more transit riders who drive together to:

  • Angle Lake Station (opening 2016)
  • Auburn Station
  • Federal Way Transit Center
  • Issaquah Transit Center
  • Kent Station
  • Mercer Island Park-and-Ride
  • Puyallup Station
  • Sumner Station
  • Tukwila Station
  • Tukwila Int’l Blvd Station

For $5 each month, carpool permits will allow regular transit commuters to access priority parking at Sound Transit’s most popular parking facilities. If you currently drive alone to a park-and-ride, visit www.RideshareOnline.com for help forming a carpool. Or if carpooling is not an option for you, only a limited number of stalls at each facility will be designated for carpool permit parking. The rest will stay complementary and available on a first come first served basis to any transit rider.
