Parking and Transportation
Parking and downtown shuttle (Intercity Transit Dash) information. At least some of the machines accept plastic but you may want to bring cash for those that don't.

This year, PTWA will provide the following transportation support:
  • A bus from Spokane (see schedule for timing and location for pick up and drop off)
  • Mileage and parking reimbursement for Western Washington students who transport three additional people to Legislative Impact Day (the people they transport do not have to be students). For the last couple of years, the Seattle bus has been nearly empty so we're giving this carpool support thing a try. Find the online form to request reimbursement here.
