We built the new park and ride to relieve congestion on I-5, promote carpooling and tie three transit systems together: Skagit Transit, Island Transit and the Whatcom Transportation Authority.
The new park and ride provides better options and services for commuters. It has 367 parking spaces and a motorcycle parking area.
We opened the park and ride in September 2011.
The new park and ride at SR 11 provides a safer, cleaner and more convenient location for people to park their cars.
The new park and ride will provide an opportunity for Skagit County, Whatcom County and Island County transit agencies to provide better and more convenient options for commuters to move about the three counties.
| Protects Environment
The park and ride provides a sustainable alternative to driving solo.
| Economic Incentive
Drivers can save money on commuting costs while reducing demand on our roads and highways.
Partnerships & Cooperation
We built the new park and ride southeast of the I-5/SR 11 interchange in Burlington in close coordination with Skagit Transit.
