Who We Are, What We Do

Transportation Services is a self-supported auxiliary and does not receive federal, state, grant or tuition funding. Revenue for capital projects, maintenance, and operations comes solely from parking fees and fines.

Advisory groups and committees

University Parking and Transportation Task Force

The main objective of the task force is to have an established internal review process that provides WSU with a comprehensive campus perspective and broad representation of parking and transportation issues.

The task force members represent various university groups including the Associated Students of Washington State University, the Residence Hall Association, the Graduate and Professional Student Association, a Commuter Student representative, WSU Faculty, WSU Administrative Professional Advisory Council, WSU Civil Service Staff, Transportation Services, Finance and Administration, Facilities Services, and the Parking Appeals Committee.

The University Parking and Transportation Task Force was established in the fall of 2002 in response to recommendations by a peer review team that visited the WSU Pullman campus. The task force meets regularly throughout the academic year.

Parking associations and fees

Parking on the Pullman campus is governed by the Washington Administrative Code, follow this link to see the Parking Rules. The state of Washington has mandated that parking at its colleges and universities will be “self-supporting.” Your parking fee is a “user” fee that enables WSU to build new parking facilities and maintain existing ones. Without these fees, we would not be able to provide adequate parking facilities.
