Metro Park & Ride lots by line

Free or Paid

Most of Metro’s Park & Ride lots include both free and paid reserved spaces. Free spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis for transit users. Metro also has reserved monthly parking at select locations and paid daily parking at the most high demand stations.

Monthly parking permits are available at select Metro stations. Monthly parking permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. To find a list of locations where Metro monthly parking permits are available, please go to .

Monthly parking permits at some locations are sold out and have wait lists. You can sign up for the wait list and will be notified when a space becomes available. While on the wait list, you can purchase daily parking at one of our pay stations, via the Metro Parking mobile app or online at .

Paying for a monthly parking secures you an assigned space until a dedicated time between 9 and 11 am. After this time, all spaces become available to transit patrons. Each location is different, so be sure to check the signs at the location or for details.

At Metro’s highest demand parking lots, all parking is paid with a daily rate. To pay, users will need to key in their license plate and TAP card numbers.

You can pay your daily parking in any of the following three ways:

  • In-person at a pay station machine, located near the station entrances.
  • By using the new Metro Parking mobile app payment option. Download the app in the App Store or on Google Play.
  • Or online by going to
