Bellevue Beat | Plan ahead for closure of South Bellevue Park and Ride
As part of the construction of East Link, Sound Transit is closing the South Bellevue Park and Ride and the Overlake Transit Center Park and Ride. The closure dates are not known at this time. However, Sound Transit will provide a three weeks notice before the closures.
The South Bellevue Park-and-Ride will be closed for approximately five years during construction. ST Express buses 550, 555 and 556, and Metro buses 241 and 249 will continue to serve Bellevue Way Southeast next to the closed park-and-ride during construction. The future South Bellevue Station will include bus and paratransit transfer facilities and a 1,500-stall parking garage. Commuters who typically use the South Bellevue P&R, are encouraged to try out the alternate park and ride lots now rather than wait until the closures take effect.
Sound Transit has leased new lots and expanded others as a means to replace parking no longer available due to the upcoming closures. Commuters are encouraged to try out the alternate park and ride lots now rather than wait until the closures take effect. Plan ahead for park and ride closures.
