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 or

50% Remaining FY20 Citation Revenue Goes to Student Emergency Fund: Effective immediately through Tuesday, June 30, 50% of all University of Idaho’s parking citation fee payment revenue will go to the Bruce & Kathy Pitman Emergency Fund. Vandals taking care of parking debt now will not only prevent potential delays in obtaining diplomas and/or transcripts, registering for classes and purchasing 2020-21 parking permits, they will also be helping U of I students financially impacted by COVID-19.
