Are Park and Pay Lots Coming?

From The Seattle Times:

Due to overcrowding at Sound Transit’s park and rides, they are toying with the idea of charging a fee to park there.

I am torn. We need people to use these systems and in all honesty most lots were not designed with high capacity despite being on high capacity lines like Link and the Sounder. However, we also want people to use the lots who use the systems, not just squat there while they shop or carpool.

It should also be noted that many other large systems like BART and Metro-North charge for parking as well.
