Reduced parking on WSU Campus

This petition had 356 supporters

     There is something that most Washington State students can agree on, and that is the unjust prices for parking. There are several Division 1 schools, such as Texas A&M, where a student can have a designated spot for their own vehicle in a lot for $584. This is the annual cost, and you get your own designated spot. WSU's prices for parking run $125 to about $660 a year, and even our most expensive lots are still a first come, first serve basis. Meaning, just because you buy our most expensive pass doesn't mean a student gets a guaranteed spot. Many students find this unjust, especially when it comes to this exuberant pricing. We would like to point out our university's habit of over selling passes as well. There are students who buy these overly expensive passes, leave their place of residence only to show up to campus to find all the parking spots are taken.

     What we are suggesting, to the University, is to cut all the prices by 25% to 50% so it justifies their over-selling of passes. This way more students could afford parking and would not have to depend on what has been seen as unreliable public transportation. It becomes inconvenient to students who utilize routes that aren't Crimson or Grey, in which many wait upwards of 40 minutes for a bus and risk being late to classes. Another option would be to designate specific parking spots to those who buy parking passes so students have a guaranteed spot whenever they decide to come to campus. With either of these options, we as students believe that it would solve our current parking problem.
