TriMet has entered into a three-year agreement with the Elks Milwaukie-Portland Lodge, whose lot is adjacent to the highly used SE Park Ave Parking Garage, which has 402 spaces. If that lot happens to be full, riders will have an easy alternative right next door at the Elks Milwaukie-Portland Lodge Park & Ride.

A total of 90 priority spaces are reserved for TriMet riders at the Elks Milwaukie-Portland Lodge Park & Ride on Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., and signs will indicate this at the lot.
