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.

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

Van Pool

WSU 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.

Busses and Shuttle Vans

  • Around town and around campus: Pullman Transit buses are free for students, staff, and faculty. Just flash your Cougar Card to ride to nearby neighborhoods and your most frequented places on and off campus. The Pullman Transit bus locator maps the location of buses in real time, so you can determine how close the next bus is to your location.
  • To the airport: Wheatland Express offers for-fee shuttle service to Spokane International Airport.
  • To Seattle and Spokane: Wheatland Express also runs buses to and from Seattle during Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks.

We offer free rides almost anywhere within the Pullman city limits and walking escorts on the WSU campus. We also provide valuable volunteer opportunities to nearly 200 students each semester.
