Carpools may apply now for a December permit to park at Issaquah Transit Center, Federal Way Transit Center, Tukwila Station, Kent Station, Auburn Station, Sumner Station or Puyallup Station, Angle Lake Station and Tukwila International Boulevard Station. For $5 per month, carpool permits allow regular transit commuters to access priority parking at Sound Transit's most popular parking facilities. Permit parking times are:

  1. 4 to 8 a.m. at Tukwila Sounder Station, Kent Station, Auburn Station, Sumner Station and Puyallup Station.
  2. 4 to 8:30 a.m. at Issaquah Transit Center, Federal Way Transit Center, Angle Lake Station and Tukwila International Boulevard Link Station.

If you carpool to your 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.
