Most Vandals living on campus leave their personal vehicle at home and use alternative transportation to get across campus and around town. Our campus and downtown Moscow fit within a two-mile diameter circle, making our community very walkable, bike-able and boardable. SMART Transit fixed route buses are free for all users, reach most locations around Moscow, and have seven stops on campus. SMART Transit buses operate Monday-Friday, 6:40 a.m.-7 p.m.
Students flying into the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport (PUW) for the spring '23 semester are invited to request a free shuttle ride from the airport to campus, offered by Parking and Transportation Services. Request a ride here. Shuttles will be offered for flights arriving prior to 7 p.m.
Vandals with temporary or permanent mobility-limiting disabilities or conditions can take advantage of our free Vandal Access Service to get wherever you need to go on campus Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during fall and spring academic sessions.
Getting home on breaks is easy on the Vandal Break Bus or using regional transit such as buses or flights through nearby airports.
All parking spaces on campus require payment for parking. Parking permit sales begin online in early July. Permits purchased by Friday, July 28, 2023, will be mailed to the purchaser's permanent address. Purchases completed after July 28, will be held for office pickup. Students are encouraged to purchase permits early and in advance of their arrival to campus.
Students living on campus will need a Silver or Economy parking permit. If permits are sold out before you arrive, contact PTS at 208-885-6424 for information on options.
For all parking and transportation information, please visit uidaho.edu/parking. Contact PTS with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-885-6424.
