New Park and Ride Lot Open in North East Lacey

Park & ride capacity in Thurston County just doubled since the county’s third major park & ride facility opened a few weeks ago. This innovative project in NE Lacey turned a closed portion of the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center into a 332-stall park & ride lot, now open and ready for carpools and vanpools.

Features of the new park & ride facility include:

  • 332 stalls;
  • security lighting;
  • video surveillance cameras;
  • electric vehicle charging stations;
  • transit island for potential future fixed-route bus service;
  • and more.

This $8.2 million project was possible with funding from the Washington State Department of Transportation Regional Mobility Grant program and Intercity Transit. Other partners include Thurston County, City of Lacey and Meridian Campus Commercial Owners Association.
