Link light rail station neighborhood parking plans: Rainier Beach
Updated July 2011
In July 2009, SDOT installed a new restricted parking zone (RPZ), Zone 31, around the Rainier Beach station area to support business and residential parking needs.
In 2010, SDOT conducted a follow-up parking study to see whether on-street parking use changed. Read the 2010 report here.

Zone 31 Facts
Community Input Incorporated Into Light Rail Parking Plans
2008 parking data
Throughout fall 2008, SDOT collected information about utilization, which is how many cars are parked on the streets around the light rail stations. This information, summarized in the Link Station Area Parking Study , is being used two ways: to help design proposals to manage on-street parking and to create a baseline that on-street parking conditions can be compared to in the future.
