While some of the more popular lots fill up early, there are many lots in the Park & Ride system that are consistently under capacity.

Everybody knows about the Redmond Transit Center Park & Ride, but did you know about 70 spots on Redmond Ridge? Or the 54 at the Sammamish Hills Lutheran Church?  

While some of the more popular lots fill up early,  there are many lots in the Park & Ride system that are consistently under capacity.

King County Metro works with private parking lot owners to lease space during the weekdays for commuters.  These other locations are sprinkled throughout the Eastside and may be a good alternative for many commuters.

So where are these “secret” Park & Ride locations?  Check out the list below in Bellevue, Redmond, Woodinville, Kirkland, Snoqualmie and Sammamish, or check out the Google map we put together.

King County Metro’s website also shows exactly which bus routes serve each location, if there are bike racks, electric vehicle charging stations (“plug and ride”), and what capacity these sites are at by 9 am.
