Park & Ride Lots

PGC Transportation Hub Park and Ride Lots

Did you know there are over 30 Park & Ride lots in Prince George's County? 

Find a park and ride lot that works for your needs and check them out on our Transportation Hub or the Commuter Connections app. 

Depending on the location, you might find a Park & Ride lot to meet with a co-worker and drive together, catch Metro, a commuter bus, TheBus, our on-demand PGC Link, or even grab a Capital Bikeshare bike!

Park and Ride - and Save!

The 2022 limit for pre-tax and/or subsidized commute-related parking is $280 per month. This is separate to the $280/month pre-tax and/or subsidy permitted for transit or vanpooling, so a commuter who pays to park and uses transit or a vanpool can access up to $560 each month in commuter benefits.

Not all Park & Ride lots charge a fee, but if they do, make sure you take full advantage of any commuter savings offered through your employer! Talk to your Human Resources or Benefits Manager today to enroll or ask them to start a program (we can help).

If you're an employer, set up your commuter benefits program today - use the free SmartBenefits platform for transit and commute-related parking benefits administration, or if you use a third-party administrator for employee benefits, ask if they can also administer transportation benefits. Remember - most employers can claim 50% of the cost of providing a transit or vanpool subsidy through the MD Commuter Tax Credit. Check out our employer benefits page for more information.
