Carpool & Parking
Carpooling with other EBLS parents is recommended for families living close to each other. Space for loading and unloading passengers at EBLS is limited. Students who live close to EBLS are encouraged to walk, bike, or ride the CVTD (Cache Valley Transit District).
The CVTD offers free transportation for all passengers. A bus stop directly in front of the Emma Eccles Jones Education Building drops‐off and picks‐up passengers at frequent intervals. Parents should inform the school if their child rides the CVTD bus. CVTD bus routes and schedules are available on the CVTD website.
Edith Bowen Lab School administration and the Parking and Transportation Services Office meet regularly. We are concerned about safety, convenience and your overall experience at USU.
Carpool - Dropping Off and Picking Up Students
When dropping off and picking up students please adhere to the new carpool maps linked below for the 2018-2019 school year.

For drop-off in the mornings, please turn west on Cemetery Road (850 North) and turn south on Junction Alley. Drop students off between Edith Bowen and the CPD building (on the east side of the school). USU Police have asked that we do not drop students off on Aggie Boulevard on the south side of hte building. Parents who want to escort their children to the building may use any of the parking options listed above. Students should enter the building through the main doors next to the flagpole in the courtyard on the north and west inside corner of the buidling.
For pick-up after school, please turn west off of 1200 East onto Cemetery Road (850 North) and follow the insructions on the maps linked above.
Special precautions should be taken when picking up children after school. Parents should drive slowly and follow the instructions of those supervising the student pick‐up procedure. For obvious safety reasons, drivers should not open their doors until they are next to the curb. When possible, drivers should turn off their car engines to reduce exhaust fumes (Idle Free Zone). Cell phones should not be used while driving in the pick‐up/drop‐off zones.
If none of the above options are feasible, the following options are available for parking:
Parents may purchase a parking permit for the Blue coded parking lots (map) at a reduced rate. Parent permits expire on May 30 of each year. These permits can be purchased from the USU Parking Office.
Four reserved Edith Bowen stalls are now located in the Black color coded parking lot, north of the CPD building. Parents and visitors may park in these stalls without a permit. After parking in these stalls, please sign in at the front desk with your name, vehicle description and license plate. Then pick up a parking sticker from the office. If parents fail to do this, the car may be ticketed. There are two thirty-minute stalls and two one-hour stalls.
- Four metered stalls are also available in the Black color coded ECERC parking lot. Parents with an EBLS permit may park in the metered stall for two hours maximum. Parents without a permit must pay the metered rate.
- RCDE/Visitor parking (12 stalls). There is a pay and display machine at this location. The price is $1.50 per hour with a maximum of 8 hours.
- Black permits are available at the USU Parking Office, $5 per day.
Big Blue Terrace (across from the HYPER building) is your best option if you are unsure of the amount of time that you will be spending at the school. The cost is $1.50 per hour.
Tennis Court/Visitor parking area has twenty-two parking stalls. If you have a parent parking permit you do not have to pay at the machine. Signage indicates “Reserved for Tennis or Visitors”. The price without a parent permit is $1.50 per hour with a maximum of eight hours.
Maverick Stadium parking can be purchased for $35.00 per year. If you choose to park here you will either have to walk up the hill to the school or ride the USU Aggie Shuttle, which stops across the street from the Education Building.
