Students, faculty, staff and visitors can now pay to park at certain locations on WSU’s campus using a mobile app.

The app, called WayToPark, is available on Android and Apple devices for free and is WSU’s first mobile parking app.

Chris Boyan, associate director of WSU Transportation Services, said the app improves customer service and makes it more convenient for drivers on campus.

The app is available for the Terrell Library garage, Smith Center garage, Green 5 South Beasley lot, Yellow 1 Indoor Practice Facility lot, Red 5 tennis courts lot, and the Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center lot.

Boyan said WSU transportation wants people to know the app only works at those locations. Traditional methods of payment will have to be used at other lots.

The app saves payment and license plate information once a user registers, simplifying the process of paying to park, Boyan said.

He said parking enforcement will be able to see who has paid for a parking spot through the app.

When using the app to park, users choose a zone and select how long they will park. After payment is confirmed, a notification will be sent when their time is close to expiring. There is an option to extend, Boyan said.

“[The app] takes the anxiety away of not getting back to your car at a certain time now,” he said.

Just like university’s new parking permits, there is no need for physical permits to be displayed on a vehicle with the app. The app uses license plate recognition and keeps all digital receipts in storage via the app.
