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 email@example.com.
Parking Updates and Closures:
Parking Permits and Vandal Break Bus Reservations For Sale Online Now. Academic year 2021-22 parking permits and Vandal Break Bus reservations are available for purchase online anytime. Monday, August 2, will be the first day to purchase permits in-person at the PTS office. Permits purchased after August 2 will require pick-up from the PTS office at 1006 Railroad Street. This ensures Vandals returning to campus don't find themselves in Moscow while their permit is in the mail to their home address.
Margie Schaper Remembered. Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) sorrowfully shares that Margie Schaper, senior parking attendant, passed away peacefully on June 23. Margie has been a fixture on campus since 1992, when she began working the east parking lot of the Kibbie Dome for football games. If she missed working even three games over the past 29 years, we’d be surprised.
Margie was the primary overnight/early morning enforcement officer from the time she attained full-time permanent status in 2001 until her death, just weeks shy of her richly deserved retirement. She provided an extra pair of eyes and ears in the early morning hours across campus, often being the first to report emergency situations or call attention to safety issues. She had a variety of other duties as well, and she especially enjoyed working with students and supervised many Vandal student employees over the years. She also served as lead trainer for all new parking attendants throughout her tenure with PTS. Margie relished her job. She enjoyed being out and about on campus, walking its familiar streets and sidewalks, and transporting groups for campus tours and conferences. Many a Vandal was ferried around campus on Margie’s watch.
Incredibly detailed, dedicated and diligent, Margie has been a touchstone at PTS. We’ll miss her deep knowledge of all things parking-related, her raucous sense of humor, her calendars of goats in trees and her deep mortification at being recognized publicly for the fine work she did.
Margie was adamant that she would not tolerate a retirement party, and the team here begrudgingly agreed not to plan anything. She might roll her eyes at us for this simple written tribute, but it’s a risk we’re willing to take. We’ll miss you, Margie, more than you ever would have let us say.
