How does purchasing Advantage Parking benefit me?

Advantage Parking guarantees you a parking stall, regardless of when you arrival at the terminal.
Reserved stalls are close to the terminal.
Advantage Parking passes can be transferred between vehicles.

Why do we need paid parking?

Reserved parking provides stalls during peak parking times, regardless of when the pass holder arrives at the Bethel Transit Terminal. The parking fees will be used by Transit to help pay for additional costs of maintaining the parking lot.

Why isn’t reserved parking offered at Ordze Transit Centre?

The Ordze Transit Centre has reached its capacity both in the number of buses that can travel through the bus terminal and the number of riders utilizing the Park and Ride facilities.

The Bethel Transit Terminal offers more capacity for busses and parking needs of customers.

Do I have to purchase a parking pass?

No, not at all. There are over 1,000 free parking stalls available, along with 15 designated parking stalls for persons with disabilities available at the Bethel Transit Terminal.

Local transit service can also transport you from bus stops near your home to the terminal, allowing you to leave your vehicle at home.
