SEATTLE (AP) - The Sound Transit Board has approved a program to offer reserved parking permits to frequent riders at its busiest park-and-ride lots around Seattle.

Transit Board officials said in a news release the goal is to guarantee parking availability to many regular riders and people who often carpool to the park-and-ride lots.

The program will be up and running by fall 2016 after tests of the permit system in a 2014 pilot project and collecting further input this year.

People who carpool to the lots are slated to get reserved parking permits first. Solo drivers could be participating in the program by late 2016 or early 2017.

To obtain a permit, riders would have to show they generally ride public transit at least three times a week.
