New parking app at WSU Pullman means no more need for quarters

September 9, 2019

 

PULLMAN, Wash. — A stellar parking spot is no longer out of reach on the WSU Pullman campus for those without quarters or time to run to a parking kiosk.
WSU Pullman Transportation Services has teamed up with an app called WayToPark, allowing visitors to pay for parking remotely. Users also can set up text reminders to alert them when their time is almost up and give them the ability to extend it from their phones.
“WayToPark provides a convenient and straight-forward way to find parking,” said Chris Boyan, associate director of WSU Transportation Services. “Of particular benefit, we think, is the ability to extend meters from phones rather than having to leave classes, meetings or other university events.”
WayToPark can be downloaded through either the Google Play or Apple store. After completing the registration process, users can indicate a parking zone, choose a duration and confirm their payment.
Users can pay for parking through WayToPark at several campus locations: Terrell Library Garage, Smith Center Garage, Green 5 South Beasley Lot, Yellow 1 Indoor Practice Facility Lot, Red 5 Tennis Courts Lot and the Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center Lot.
As with WSU Pullman’s annual and daily parking permits, physical permits do not need to be displayed inside a vehicle, according to WSU Pullman Transportation Services. That’s because a License Plate Recognition system is used to read plates as the permit.
Upon launching at WSU Pullman, WayToPark is now available in 15 states across the country. To learn more, visit WayToPark.com.
