Carpool parking permits are currently available for: Angle Lake Station, Auburn Station, Federal Way Transit Center, Issaquah Transit Center, Kent Station, Puyallup Station, Sumner Station, Tukwila International Boulevard Station and Tukwila Sounder Station.

To make your commute easier, Sound Transit is offering $5 per month carpool parking permits to groups of two or more commuters who regularly drive together to catch the bus or train. Permits give you access to priority parking areas on weekdays during the morning rush hour.

Permit applicants must provide basic contact information and ORCA card numbers for each carpool member. Regular transit ridership is not required for initial issue of a permit, but once a permit is issued ORCA records will be checked to verify regular ridership. At least two carpool members must average three days of ridership per week (12 days per month) to qualify for monthly permit renewals.

Permits are also available at select King County Metro park-and-ride lots (pricing and eligibility vary depending on location). For a full list of facilities and requirements, click the "Apply here" button.
