Park and Ride (P&R) lots are areas specifically dedicated for use by commuters to park vehicleswhile using public transit or participating in carpools or vanpools.

They also alleviate community opposition to on-street parking problems in areas most suited for shared commutes.

Preliminary plans for additional, official P&R lots have been initiated in many high-traffic areas, but until these projects are approved and completed, a little creativity in working with local officials and businesses can go a long way to establish short-term P&R arrangements.
