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're here to help! If you have questions, contact us at 208-885-6424 or Our office is open to the public. We're located on campus inside the Intermodal Transit Center, 1006 Railroad Street. PTS office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the academic year and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during academic breaks.

Parking Updates and Closures:

Academic Break Parking. Academic Break parking enforcement is in effect from Saturday, December 18, through Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Regular enforcement resumes at 2 a.m. Wednesday, January 12, 2022. A summary follows, and for complete information on academic break parking, view the Parking Enforcement Schedule. Have an enjoyable and safe winter break.

  • No overnight parking or vehicle storage is allowed on any campus streets during break. Vehicles in violation may be cited and/or towed
  • Vehicle storage and overnight parking during winter break is allowed in Purple or Silver parking lots (not streets), as well as in Economy Lot 57E (gravel, west of Kibbie adjacent to Perimeter)
  • No permit is required for daytime parking (6 a.m. — 2 a.m.) in Orange, Red, Blue, Purple and Silver lots during winter break
  • Overnight enforcement of Gold, Orange, Red and Blue parking lots remains unchanged during Winter Break
  • Gold and Green parking lots require permits year-round
  • Meter and pay station require payment year-round EXCEPT for Student Recreation Center (SRC) Parking Lots 107 (east side) and 108 (west side) which do not require payment during summer and academic breaks.

Snow poles designate spaces for NO PARKING. Snow clearing will be improved this season with the designation of seasonal "no parking" spaces in residential parking lots. Snow poles are temporary and will be placed annually in late fall and removed in spring after the threat of snow passes. With these parking spaces cleared of vehicles throughout the winter season, when the snow does fall the plows will have increased clearance in residential parking lots, improving plow and driver safety and ensuring that space for relocating snow out of the driving lanes will always be available. The addition of snow poles will make everyone's winter parking experience safer and will accelerate the rate at which lots can be plowed.

Vandal Break Bus reservations for sale online. Vandal Break Bus reservations for Spring Break Bus, departing Saturday, March 12, and returning Sunday, March 20, are now available. Vandal Break Bus makes traveling simple: board the bus on campus in Moscow and travel with ease.

Sidewalk Closure: North side of 6th Street, adjacent to the energy plant at the northeast corner of Line Street and 6th, will be closed starting Tuesday, August 16, 2021. Temporary fencing around the sidewalk will prevent use of the sidewalk and the bike pump station throughout most of the fall. The closure accommodates installation of a turbine at the energy plant. The intersection at Line Street and 6th Street will not be affected by the closure.
