Sound Transit launches six-month pilot parking project at four stations

Friday, January 31, 2014

While Shoreline and Lake Forest Park are still in the early planning phases for the 185th and 145th stations for Sound Transit, ST has just launched a six-month pilot parking project at four of the existing stations to test permit-only parking for regular transit customers.

Although the majority of parking spaces will remain free for transit customer use, a limited number of spaces will be reserved for the pilot program at Sound Transit facilities in Mukilteo, Issaquah, Sumner and Tukwila. Reserved parking areas at those stations will be clearly marked with signs and colored lines.

Permit parking is being tested this year as they look at ways of making sure parking is available first and foremost for transit users in lots that are becoming increasingly crowded.

After the pilot program ends this summer, the results will be presented to the Sound Transit Board for review and consideration of future steps.
