It is the responsibility of each motor vehicle operator to know the Columbia Basin College (CBC) regulations and the motor vehicle laws. CBC assumes no responsibility for the care and/or protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time while it is operated or parked on college property.
There is a recognized speed limit for safety pursuant to WAC 132S-300-135, which states that no vehicle shall be operated on the campuses at a speed in excess of fifteen miles per hour in parking lots and lower speed should be used as is reasonable and prudent in the circumstances. For safety, no vehicle of any type shall at any time use the campus parking lots for reckless or negligent driving and pedestrian traffic should be yielded to when they are traveling through the parking lots.
There are additional Motor Vehicle Regulations for Columbia Basin College, specific to the campus, buildings and/or parking areas. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Campus Security Office at (509) 542-4819 or ext. 7777.
Unlike parking at many colleges and universities, parking on the CBC campuses is cost-free to students and staff, as long as you park in white lined parking spots. Parking may seem limited, especially at the start of the quarter, so arriving early enough to find a parking spot in the vicinity of the building or area you desire may be needed.

Enforcement of parking rules and regulations will begin the first day of the week of full classes of the fall quarter and will continue until the end of summer quarter. Campus Security has been delegated the responsibility of motor vehicle and parking enforcement. Violations of parking may warrant the issuance of a warning, summons or parking citation.
CBC’s list of parking fines.
Citations may be paid at the Business Office Cashier located in the A Building.
Any fines and penalties for citations must be appealed in writing, stating fully all ground for appeal, within five days from the date of the citation, to the campus Safety and Security Supervisor. There are two levels of appeal, a first-level of appeal to the Safety and Security Supervisor and after a decision is rendered, a second-level of appeal may be filed with the Parking Citation Review Committee. Information about parking appeals may be found here. Citation Appeal forms are available through the Campus Security Office or online.
Foot traffic is the primary means of transportation within the internal passageways of the campus. WAC 132S-300-140 speaks to the Pedestrian’s right of way on campus, wherein vehicles are responsible for slowing or stopping to yield to pedestrian traffic, though where a sidewalk is provided, pedestrians shall proceed upon the sidewalk.
For safety purposes, individuals are not to use wheeled conveyances (other than disabled conveyances) such as skateboards, bikes, roller skates, roller blades, etc. Hoverboards are classified as skateboards which cannot be used on CBC campuses and have been banned from anyone possessing them in campus buildings and on campus grounds.
Carpooling is a great way to save money and reduce congestion on roadways and in parking lots. In an effort to encourage carpooling, CBC has designated 70 carpool parking spots in various lots at the Pasco campus and 5 carpool parking spots at the Richland campus. Carpool parking is identified by GREEN Striping and signage and is reserved for vehicles with a CBC carpool parking permit.
Carpool Parking Permits are at no cost and permits will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Cars parked in carpool spots must have at least two occupants riding to and from campus, and at least two carpool permits displayed on the dashboard. Carpool Parking Permits will not be issued or renewed if the applicant has an outstanding campus parking violation.
Encouraging alternative modes of transportation such as biking is important to the College. Special racks have been provided for bicycles throughout the campus. Individuals are not to chain bikes to posts, pipes, trees, etc. Bicycles must be walked, not ridden, on sidewalks or through internal passageways of the CBC campus.
Bike lockers are available for those wishing to secure their bicycle and belongings while on campus. The lockers can be checked out by faculty, staff, students or college affiliates. Bike lockers may be checked out on a quarterly or annual basis. Applications must be completed in their entirety and turned into the Security Office. A copy of a CBC student ID, employee ID or information detailing the applicant’s affiliation with CBC is required.
CBC and the Security Department reserve the right to open any Bike locker at any time to verify use is consistent with its intended use. CBC is not responsible for lost or stolen items while they are in campus Bike Lockers. See the Bike Locker Application for a full list of rules and regulations.
CBC also provides bike rack parking on a first-come, first-served basis throughout campus. Owners are responsible for locking bikes to racks with their own personal lock systems. Buildings with bike rack parking are P, W, S and T Buildings.
Employee parking permits for reserved parking spots are available for full-time faculty and staff on a first-come, first-served basis. The annual cost for a reserved parking spot is $30.00. All additional tags are $1.00. The annual cost must be paid each year to continue the assignment of the reserved parking spot.
Paved parking spaces with YELLOW striping are paid spots reserved for faculty and staff. No student or visitor parking permitted until after 10:00 p.m.
Issuance of Employee Parking Permits is handled through the Plant Operations Department. For additional information, please contact Jennifer Rada at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 2333.
There are two parking spaces on the Pasco campus reserved for Electric Vehicle Charging with two outlets available at the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Building. Though there is no charge, users must provide their own EVSE to charge at the stations.
