WSU Tri-Cities is the only WSU campus without a parking fee. Other campuses have parking permit systems in place, and they also provide local transit passes to students.
This proposed WSU Tri-Cities fee amount is comparable to the lowest priced parking permits at the Pullman and Vancouver campuses, and is significantly less than parking permits at Spokane (Pullman: blue permit $129, red $239. Spokane: green permit $395. Vancouver: gray permit $161).
