General Downtown Parking Information

The core downtown streets of Pullman are restricted to two hour parking.  There are some long term parking lots where parking is available for a longer period of time.  All of the downtown streets and parking lots are posted as no parking between the hours of 3:00am and 6:00am to accommodate street maintenance.

The two hour parking is enforced Monday through Saturday from 8:00am to 6:00pm.  Downtown parking is not enforced on Sundays, Holidays and at the direction of the Chief of Police.  For a map of the downtown parking area click here.

A limited number of parking permits are available for certain City owned parking lots and there are some restrictions as to who can purchase the permits in certain lots.  Residential Downtown permits are also available to residents in the downtown area, but are only valid in the lot on NE Spring St and in the lot at the corner of N Grand and NW Whitman St.  With the exception of residential permits, permits are not valid during the hours of 3:00am and 6:00am.

Persons with disabilities who have a valid State issued handicap permit can park downtown without time restrictions (except from 3:00am to 6:00am).  In order to avoid an infraction, the placard must be clearly visible to officers and the vehicle must be legally parked.  Keep in mind that WSU handicap permits are not valid off of campus.

Recent Changes to Parking Fines

The State of Washington authorizes local entities to establish fines for civil parking infractions. The purpose of enforcement is to encourage and gain compliance with parking regulations. The City establishes parking infraction fine amounts by Resolution. Prior to 2018, the last time that there were any parking fine increases in teh City of Pullman was 2000. 

This year, Pullman City Council passed a resolution to increase parking fine amounts to gain compliance with parking regulations, and to better align fine amounts in Pullman with those of similarly sized entities in Washington and Idaho.
