Zipcar is a one-of-a-kind car sharing service that is just one of Downtown Bellevue’s many alternative transportation options. It allows users to reserve and check-out a vehicle anywhere from a week to an hour in advance. Zipcar can be used on its own or as a compliment to other modes, offering users more flexibility in their schedules while not having to rely on a personal vehicle. Additionally, it’s a great option for those who go to work at peak-time and take off-peak trips, when some transit routes have limited or suspended service.

Here’s how Zipcar works: Zipcar has ten cars available in Bellevue, all in Downtown . Users sign up online and pay an annual fee to become a member. Once a member, you’re given a membership card and gain access to 500+ vehicles in Downtown Bellevue, Downtown Redmond, and Seattle; and 10,000+ nationwide. This means you’ll be able to reserve a car near you and check it out for as long as you need, for an additional per-trip fee. You reserve cars via the Zipcar app or website and simply scan into the cars with your membership card. Zipcars are parked in garages, lots, and on the streets, so there is no need to go into a rental office or deal with keeping track of car keys which are left inside the vehicles. All gas, insurance, and 180 miles are included with all reservations; all you need to do is get the Zipcar back to the location where you picked it up for the next Zipcar member to use. Click here to learn about the fee structure.

Downtown Bellevue Zipcar locations are listed below. Click here for a map of locations. If you are using the map, choose Seattle (Puget Sound Region) and click on the icon over Bellevue to find all Zipcar locations in Downtown Bellevue. You can also type in Bellevue in the search bar in the top left. The locations are as follows:

Zipcar Flexible: Zipcar has recently introduced a new version of their service called Zipcar Flexible, operating between Downtown Bellevue and Seattle. Unlike traditional Zipcar, these cars are one-way vehicles, meaning they do not need to be returned to their pick-up location. The service includes guaranteed parking on both ends of the trip, in both Downtown Bellevue and Seattle. Using the same reservation process as regular Zipcar, members can travel between the Eastside and west side, carpool back, ride transit back, or even stay there!

There are currently two Zipcar Flexible (one-way) locations in Downtown Bellevue:

Elements Parking Garage
989 Elements (989 112th Ave NE)

Griffin Parking Lot
NE 8th St./ 110th Ave (10921 NE 8th St)

These cars can be taken to multiple Seattle locations including Downtown, Belltown, Capitol Hill, Beacon Hill, South Lake Union, Fremont, and West Seattle. These cars can also be taken one-way from Seattle to Bellevue.

Pricing per trip for these one way trips starts at $5, making it a comparable option to riding the bus, using a ride app such as Uber or Lyft, or another mode. Check out an example of how this service works by following this link: zipcar.com/flexible.

Try Zipcar: If you are interested in becoming a member you can download the Zipcar app to see Zipcar locations and availability, and be on the road within minutes. If you are interested in a business account for your company or department contact Zipcar at seattlemarketing@zipcar.com and mention Choose Your Way Bellevue to get set up with a free account (a $75 savings!).

I-405 Express Bus Travel and Choose Your Way Bellevue Commute Planning can hook you up!
Having recently moved and gone through a commute change, I thought it to be fitting to fill in the Choose Your Way Bellevue community about my process to explore my commute options and boy, am I happy with my new commute!

I’ve enjoyed my bus commute for the past two years from the Houghton neighborhood in Kirkland. I was riding the Metro 234/235 and the commute was a piece of cake. I’d walk 4 minutes to my bus stop and I’d ride the 25 minutes right up the Bellevue Transit Center. Easy breezy. I was nervous about moving three miles north, farther from my tried and trusted route. But come July 1, I had the chance to explore all my options and combinations from the Juanita/ Totem Lake neighborhood.
Moving can be a stressful time, but having my commute nailed down made the transition a bit easier. Here is how I went about planning my new commute (and how we can help you plan yours).

I looked up the bus route options from my home address using Google Maps (transit). Bing has a transit mapping function, too; I had to give that a try as well and it yielded similar results. I had a few combinations worth trying! I still had the 234 within walking distance from my house but I knew it would take almost an hour to get to work. I have a new puppy at home! I can’t be spending two hours on the bus every day. With the construction on Northup Way and summer congestion getting into and out of Downtown Kirkland on State Street leaving that route a bit more unpredictable (and possibly delayed), I opted to leave that route for a later date when I was less worried about time.

I checked the park and rides in my area using WSDOT’s Park and Ride locator map. The Kingsgate Park and Ride was only a mile away and there are a number of express bus options into Downtown Bellevue that leave the Totem Lake Freeway Station pretty frequently. It’s just a three-minute walk from the Park and Ride to the Freeway Station down 116th Ave NE to NE 128th St.

walking pic
I tried a number of commute combinations. While it might seem counterintuitive, the two-bus option (255 >> 522/535 Express buses) was actually shorter than my Metro 234 ride (30 minutes versus 50). The walk to the park and ride isn’t the most walkable. While it is developing, right now Totem Lake is still a pretty auto-centric place; the cars are moving pretty fast.

I ended up preferring to drive the mile and parking at the Kingsgate Park and Ride to catch the first bus that pulled up to Bus Bay 1. The Park and Ride gets pretty full, but so far I haven’t seen it completely full before 8:00 A.M. However, once school starts again this fall I’m sure it will be a different monster; it’s quite a popular spot. I’m not the first one to discover this suburban gem!

The bus ride on the Sound Transit 532/ 535 or Metro 237 pick up and do not stop again until we all arrive at the Bellevue Transit Center: 10 minutes pick-up to drop off in the I-405 express toll lanes. We literally zoom past all the traffic heading into Downtown Bellevue. I feel like I am in bus rider heaven. Three miles farther from work and I was getting to work in a third of the time! Granted, the buses can get pretty full. I end up standing half the time, but it’s only 10 minutes so I don’t mind. Trick of the trade: the Metro 342 also goes to Downtown Bellevue but it makes one more stop (at NE 70th Pl) so it has to weave out of the Express Toll Lanes. This can add up to 5 more minutes to an otherwise speedy ride.

bus options
My prior bus commute was a local Metro route that served a lot of stops, and was decently full at peak periods but always had a seat for me. I saw the same faces every day and was a bit sad to leave my routine. But this new commute rhythm has really given me a shorter commute time and so many options. I can count on getting home early enough to take my pup on a hike.

hiking
I would suggest exploring both your local Metro routes to connect to an express bus, or check out the park and ride options.

I may work in the transportation field every day and I have a lot of these tools already in my back pocket. While we encourage you to try these tips for exploring your bus routes on your own, if it all seems too daunting we’re here to help! We can explore the potential routes, different mode combinations and how long different options would take you. If you’d like us to take a look at bus routes around you, fill out a commute inquiry form and we’ll get back to you within a few business days!

You can find me in the express toll lanes,

Bike racks are available throughout Downtown Bellevue; check out the downtown bike rack map to find one near Bellevue Arts Fair Weekend venues.

DRIVE

Those choosing to drive to the fair will have some construction projects to contend with, including the closure of 110th Ave NE (read about it here: ). Remember that the NE 6th direct access ramp is for vehicles with two or more occupants on weekends; therefore, single drivers exiting at NE 6th will need to turn south on 112th Ave NE and then head west on NE 4th; or turn north on 110th or 112th Ave NE and then head west on NE 8th to access the freeway.

We’ll see you at the fair!

You can plan your route with the City of Bellevue bike map or the interactive King County bike map.

So you’ve decided to take the plunge and be a regular transit user; congratulations! We’ll make sure you know all the tips and tricks to your ORCA card so you’re tapping like a pro on your first go.

orcatap
What is an ORCA card? ORCA stands for ‘One Regional Card for All’. It is a card that can be used to pay your fare on all regional modes of transit; bus, ferry, rail, and train. The ORCA card will automatically keep track of different fares and your transfers, and will allow you to transfer seamlessly between agencies.

Where to get an ORCA card:

For a standard adult ORCA card there are multiple options; you can get your card by mail, online or in person. The card cost is $5.

Youth cards are also $5 and may be obtained by mail or in person (see below on where to pick up a youth card in person) with proof of age. Youth cards provide riders age 6-18 with reduced fare. More info on youth cards can be found here (information about other types of reduced-fare cards is below).

By mail: Print and complete the form and mail it in with a check or money order to the following address:

ORCA Regional Mail Center
KSC TR-0108
201 S Jackson St
Seattle WA 98104-3856

Online: By visiting ORCAcard.com you can order an adult card online. It is recommended that you create an account to register your card, but if you’d like to order an unregistered card you can do that as well. Cards will be sent out five to seven business days after the purchase date.

Why register an ORCA card?

To add insurance to your commute, consider registering your ORCA card. This way, if your card is lost or stolen you can freeze the account and have the remaining balance transferred to your new card. Register your ORCA card here.

In Person:

To get any type of ORCA card you may visit one of the transit agency offices or an ORCA To-Go event, which are mobile sales events. For a link to upcoming ORCA To-Go events click here. King County locations are open the first and last four business days of each month at the following locations:

For further information on accessibility read our blog.

How to load your ORCA card:

When purchasing your ORCA card, you’ll have to decide how you’d like to pay your fare. If you’re a regular rider, a regional pass may be your best option. This will provide you with unlimited rides at your selected fare rate for a pre-determined time period. Alternatively, using the E-purse will allow you to pay as you go and only for what you use. It is also possible to set up a monthly autoload so that you’re never without your fare. Typically, value will be added at the same time as your purchase of the card. Value added online, by mail, or by phone takes 24-48 hours to go out to the ORCA card readers. After that time, tap on the reader, and the value is added. The tap is required to activate the add value transaction. Tap within 60 days to activate your value.

For more information about fares follow this link. For general fare info click here, and for peak and off-peak bus fare info click here.

Some examples of pass types are listed below.

  • A regional pass, like a monthly PugetPass.
  • A regional day pass. Good for unlimited rides starting at first use through 3 a.m. the next day. Additional fare is required for one-way fares above $3.50 (adult) or $1.75 (senior/disabled).
  • An agency-specific pass, like Kitsap Transit or Washington State Ferries monthly pass.
  • E-purse, short for electronic purse, to use like cash to pay your fare. Store from $5 to $300 E-purse value on your ORCA card.
  • A combination of pass and E-purse. Add E-purse to cover any additional fares beyond your monthly pass.

How to reload an ORCA card:

Once you have our ORCA card, it can be used again and again by reloading it. You can do this online, by mail, with the help of ORCA Customer Service, or at participating retailers by following the above guidance; or by ticket vending machine. For a list of ticket vending machine locations click here.

TranBen Vouchers:

At some point you may receive a TranBen Voucher. This is a voucher that acts like a check to put value onto your ORCA card. You can redeem these at participating retailers listed here, at a customer service office (listed above) or by mail to the address listed above along with an Add Value Form.

For even more info:

All this information and more can be found at www.ORCAcard.com, where all FAQs are answered, and here. As always, Choose Your Way Bellevue is here to answer any additional questions. Send us an email at info@CYWB.org. Or if you prefer, contact ORCA or the relevant transit agency.
