Groups of two or more commuters who regularly drive together to participating park and rides may be eligible to apply for carpool parking permits. King County Metro and Sound Transit each own and operate distinct park and rides and each have similar HOV permit programs; pricing and eligibility vary depending on location.

Applicants will be required to register with basic contact information and ORCA card numbers, Vanpool ID, or RideshareOnline.com email account for each member of a carpool. Regular transit ridership is not required for initial issue of a permit, but once a permit is issued ORCA numbers, Vanpool, or RideshareOnline.com will be checked to verify regular transit ridership. At least two carpool members must average three days of ridership per week (12 days per month) to qualify for monthly permit renewals.

The King County Metro carpool parking permits are free and are available to carpoolers meeting vanpools, buses, trains or private carpools at Eastgate, Issaquah Highlands, Northgate, Redmond, South Kirkland, and South Renton.

The Sound Transit park and ride permits cost $5 per month and are available to carpoolers continuing on to catch a bus or train at Angle Lake Station, Auburn Station, Issaquah Transit Center, Kent Station, Puyallup Station, Sumner Station, Tukwila International Boulevard Station and Tukwila Sounder Station.
