Payroll Deduction


Full-time staff or faculty members of UW Bothell can enroll in payroll deductions when purchasing a parking permit online. Payroll deduction means the permit cost will be divided in equal amounts on a pro rata basis from one’s paycheck. Annual and Flex permits can be purchased with payroll deduction only. Please note that parking rates including payroll deduction amounts are increased with the approval of the Board of Trustees and Board of Regents. These rate changes will be reflected in deductions after 9-1-2020.
