WSU Life



Getting around

A variety of transportation options make it easy to get around campus and the surrounding community.

Buses and shuttle vans

Buses and shuttles travel to the most popular local destinations.

Ride Sharing

WSU Zimride helps you offer or request rides online for commutes, road trips, and popular events.

A van pool is a great way to cut commute expenses. The University coordinates van pools from Palouse, Colfax, Colton, Uniontown, and the Lewiston/Clarkston Valley. Park and Ride lots let you park free during the day and ride the Pullman Transit bus to campus.

Taxi Services

You can always call a cab.

A-Z Taxi: 509-336-5050 or 208-882-6141 (Idaho)

A Wildcat Taxi: 208-301-2175

Big Cat Taxi: 509-334-5200

Top Notch Taxi: 509-338-0500

Green Bikes

The campus’ forward-thinking bike-sharing program lets students, faculty, and staff borrow bikes (and helmets) for a day for free.


The Zipcar car-sharing program lets you reserve and rent a car for as little as an hour to run errands or a few days for a weekend trip with friends. Zipcars are parked on the Pullman campus for checkout by university students, faculty and staff. You must be a licensed driver and at least 18 years old to rent a Zipcar.


Parking costs vary depending upon the type of parking permit you buy. Start by checking out the campus parking map. Visitor parking permits are available for a nominal fee at the Visitor Center.

Home football game traffic and parking

When campus streets are filled with cheering Cougs on game days, expect detours and parking changes. Arrive early and avoid traffic by using the FREE Game Day Park & Ride..

Will I need a car?

For most students, the answer is no. There’s a very efficient, free transit system to and from campus. Most students who bring cars find that they use the local transit system instead—and leave their cars parked most of the semester.
