Shuttle, van service available for ceremony

Shuttle and disability van service will be available for those attending Washington State University’s Fall Commencement, set for 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 11 in Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum.

Teri Nelson, the university’s commencement coordinator, said “We would like to encourage this service because of limited parking in the lots closest to the coliseum.” The university is expecting some 3,000 friends, family members and students to attend the fall commencement.

Those wanting to ride the shuttle should park in the Red 2 lot adjacent to WSU’s Lewis Alumni Centre. Although disability parking will be available around Beasley Coliseum, people can also board WSU Disability Resource Center vans at the alumni center. The shuttle and the disability vans will begin operating every 12-15 minutes starting at 9 a.m.  The drop-off point will be the front of the coliseum on North Fairway Drive.

After the commencement ceremony, shuttle and van service will operate from the front of the coliseum to the alumni center. The service will run until 1 pm.

The Disability Resource Center vans and drivers are provided by the university’s Disability Awareness Association. 

For questions about the shuttle and van service, call the WSU Visitor Center at (509) 335-8633.
