Parking and Transportation Services
Welcome! Your University of Idaho Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) team is focused on keeping U of I moving. As we grow, it’s imperative that we become a campus where a personally owned vehicle is not required to meet commuter and campus resident mobility needs. Our beautiful Moscow community is easily traversed by most on foot or bicycle, and when you need to get around more quickly or go longer distances, alternative transportation options are available. Vandal Access Service provides Vandals with mobility-limiting disabilities access to facilities and programs on campus. If you need to bring a car to campus, please understand that parking on campus is limited and a permit will be required.
We are here to help! If you have questions, contact us at 208-885-6424, firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at 1006 Railroad Street, at the corner of Railroad Street and W. Sweet Avenue. We're located inside the Intermodal Transit Center (map).
Parking Updates and Closures
Elm Street between Idaho and University Avenues: Elm Street between Idaho and University Avenues (part of Purple Lot 95), must be cleared of all vehicles no later than midnight Thursday, September 19 due to utility work on Friday, September 20. Any vehicles remaining on Elm Street between Idaho and University Avenues on Friday morning will be subject to towing. Purple permit holders may move to any Silver or Purple parking lot on campus, may park in any Blue parking lot between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m. (no overnight parking in Blue parking lots between 2 and 6 a.m.), or may temporarily move to Green 111 (South Hill Apartments) off of Deakin Street (see map). Purple permit holders displaced by the Elm Street utility project may park in Green Lot 111 (South Hill Apartments) through Sunday but must move to a Purple or Silver lot no later than 2 a.m. Monday morning, September 23. While the utility work has to be done, we understand this is both short notice and unexpected, so if you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask: email@example.com, 208-885-6424.
Gold Lot 40: Beginning Monday, September 16, a 90-day project making emergency masonry repairs to the southwest elevation of the Administration Building will require temporary closure of two Gold permit parking spaces, two ADA spaces, one Delivery Permit space and one Service permit space in Gold Lot 40 (Administration Building). Please see map. ADA access to both Albertsons and the Admin. Building will be maintained. Please refer project questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and parking/transportation questions to email@example.com. Thank you for your patience during this much-needed repair project.
Red Lot 34 (paved west of Kibbie): The drive lane on the east side of Red Lot 34 will be closed beginning Thursday, September 12, for construction. Vehicles may travel through Red Lot 34 to reach the southeast corner of Kibbie, but please do reduce speed and look carefully for pedestrians on the walkway! The project is expected to take a week.
Vandal Football: Vandal Football fans will encounter a different look this year with arena construction and the intersection closure at 6th and Line. For all the info, go to our Football Parking page and check out the West Dome Parking map, Game Day Alternate Route map and the Overflow RV Parking Area map. U of I hosts the Eastern Washington Eagles on Saturday, September 21. Go Vandals!
Bruce Pitman Center ADA Access: For the duration of the Pitman Center construction project, the ADA spaces on the north side of the building in Gold Lot 18 and the adjacent accessible ramp to the north building entry will be unavailable during contractor working hours. In the evenings and on weekends, two of these ADA spaces and the accessible ramp will be available, with one space remaining offline 24/7. A total of three ADA accessible parking spaces on 7th Street outside the ADA-accessible west entrance to Bruce Pitman Center will be maintained for the duration of the project, as will the two ADA spaces in Meter Lot 29 across the street from Pitman between St. Auggies and VandalStore. Please reach out to us with any questions: 208-885-6424, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ride up the Hill in Comfort: One of the silver linings of our summer of construction is that the closure of the intersection of 6th and Line Streets prompted a SMART Transit west route detour right through the heart of campus. From the Intermodal Transit Center at the corner of Sweet and Railroad, ride for free to stops at Deakin, Ash, the Idaho Student Union Building (formerly the Idaho Commons), the Agriculture Science building, Wallace, and on to Walmart, Winco, Rosauers and others (be sure to check the SMART Transit schedule for details). Ride up the hill, buy your groceries or meet friends in Friendship Square for coffee and a movie, all fare free!
Meter Lot 35 is Open: Meter Lot 35 (Student Health Building) is open for use by campus visitors, prospective Vandals, students, staff and faculty: ($0.75/hour from 6-8 a.m.; $1.50/hour between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.; and $0.75 from 5-9 p.m.).
