People will be able to see the latest ideas for the South Hill Park-and Ride lot and meet with staff from Sound Transit, Pierce Transit and WSDOT to share ideas and help ensure that the Park-and Ride lot meets their needs. 

The South Hill Park-and Ride lot is just one of numerous improvements Sound Transit's Regional Express department is bringing to transit centers, park-and-ride lots and high-occupancy vehicle ramps throughout the region. Regional Express is also introducing the ST Express bus system, a strategic web of at least 17 routes providing two-way all-day bus service connecting the major urban centers of Bellevue, Everett, Tacoma and Seattle with numerous cities and communities in Central Puget Sound. Two bus routes between Bellevue and Seattle and Tacoma and Seattle are already in service partially funded by Sound Transit and these two routes plus seven others will begin ST Express service in September.

Along with ST Express, Sound Transit is building Sounder commuter rail running 82 miles between Everett and Tacoma/Lakewood and Link light rail, a 21-mile system connecting the cities of SeaTac, Tukwila and Seattle and a 1.6-mile system in Tacoma.
