I received a citation. What are my options?

You have two options, to pay or to appeal the citation. If your vehicle was parked in violation of Boise State Rules and Regulations, then paying the citation is the best course of action. Appeals are for those who do not believe their vehicle was parked in violation, and have received the citation in error. You may pay or appeal your citation by following the links below:

Please note, appeals are not for arguing the validity of a parking policy, or to request an exception to policy, they are ONLY to correct an error for those who received citations while in accordance with policy.

Who sets the Rules and Regulations for parking?

Boise State University Transportation & Parking Services does not set policy or rules and regulations for the parking program on the campus of Boise State University. Parking regulations are made by the University Administration upon recommendation from the “Transportation & Parking Advisory Committee.” This committee is comprised of faculty, staff, and students.

How do I argue or suggest parking policy?

Parking regulations are made by the University Administration upon recommendation from the “Transportation & Parking Advisory Committee.” Any comments, concerns, or recommendations concerning the parking program should be submitted (in writing) to Boise State University Transportation & Parking Services. The department will then present your comments to the University Administration and the Transportation & Parking Advisory Committee for their consideration. Changes of parking regulations are made by the University Administration upon recommendation from the Transportation & Parking Advisory Committee.

To submit a comment, concern, or recommendation for us to pass on to the committee, please contact us.
