    Those who drive to the lots with at least one other person to take a bus, carpool or vanpool will be able to get permits to reserve a parking spot at 10 more lots in addition to seven that already allow it.

    At least two of the people in the carpool must ride transit 12 days a month to be eligible.

    Holders of the park-and-ride permits will be allowed to have reserved spots at the additional lots on November 1.

    Metro initiated the system of being able to reserve a spot for free starting in February to encourage more people to carpool.

    Those who have permits must be parked in their spot by 8:30 a.m. or it can be used by the general public.

    The park-and-ride lots that will have the reserved parking are Green Lake, Aurora Village, Shoreline, Bothell, Kingsgate, Kenmore, Bear Creek, Renton Metropolitan Place, Wilburton and Tukwila
