Anyone have experience with Crump Rd park & ride? Safe? Adequate parking? Just bought a home in Bellingrath that is about 4.5 miles from park & ride via Gleneagles rd. Sounds like a decent commute option: ~10 minutes to park & ride plus 20 minutes on lynx to .15 miles from office. Drive is a little less than 30 minutes to parking garage, so not really saving much time driving. Train runs every 10 minutes during commute, so flexibility is good.

Crump Road? Do you mean Sharon Road West?

Yes, I think so. You take Sharon Road West to get there, but Lynx website lists park & ride address on Crump Road.

Crump is that new road that runs off of Westinghouse to the Lynx Station near Sharon Rd West (paralleling South Blvd)

I think it's fine during the day, but a bit isolated after dark. Be sure to walk with others

Thanks Loves. Nothing is going to turn me off of public transit faster than safety concerns. If I even have to think about this, I'll drive.

You're probably safer on the train than in any parking garage.
