University of Idaho - I Banner

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 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).

PTS staff are available for all customer service inquiries via phone (208-885-6424) and email ( All parking and transportation related news, updates, and detailed information is provided here on our website; as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

2019-2020 Annual Parking Permit Prorated Credits: Orange, Purple and Silver parking permit holders with direct deposit will receive prorated credits for their parking permits based on the prorated refund/purchase schedule for the week of March 22. If you have an Orange, Purple or Silver parking permit but do not have direct deposit, sign up for direct deposit before April 30 via VandalWeb. You do not need to return your permit or visit our office to receive your credit.

Since Gold and Green parking permits are required year-round, these will not be automatically refunded. However, if Gold and Green permit holders are sure they will no longer be parking in Gold or Green parking lots through August 15, 2020 (permit expiration date), these permits may be returned for a prorated refund based on the prorated refund/purchase schedule and the date we receive your permit. Mail your parking permit to: PTS, 875 Perimeter Drive, MS 4106, Moscow, ID, 83844-4106.  Be sure you have set up direct deposit before April 30 to receive your credit.

Red, Blue and Economy permits do not have a refund value past the week of March 15.

Purple Lot 36 (Deakin and University): Tree removal work will require closure of the 9 parking spaces running north-south along Deakin Avenue in Purple Lot 36 during Spring Break. If your vehicle is currently parked in one of these spaces (see map), please move as soon as possible. Thank you!
