Coming Soon: New Ticket Dispensers. Plus: Faster, Easier Options to Pay in Terminal Before Departure

The airport has completed the installation of new parking ticket dispensers at all airport parking lot entrances. All ticket dispensers and pay stations guide travelers through the process with audio (voice) and on-screen instructions when approaching the new units. New self-pay equipment is also available at the exit lanes.

NEW: PAY IN THE TERMINAL before returning to your car.
Travelers who keep their parking ticket with them (in a safe place so as not to lose it) can pay at one of several in-terminal pay stations before returning to their vehicle. Simply scan the bar code on the ticket, and pay by cash or credit at the machines. On-screen instructions will guide travelers through the process. THE PAID-IN-TERMINAL PARKING TICKET IS REQUIRED AT THE EXIT LANES. The exit lane reader will read the ticket as PAID. A "lost ticket" does incur a fee, and a travel itinerary is used for verification of the days parked in the lot. So, be sure you have a safe place, such as a billfold or wallet, to keep the parking ticket during your travels.

One cash/credit machine, as well as two credit pay stations, will be available adjacent to Door 6 near the rental car counters.  Another cash/credit machine will be available under the hanging plane, near the Arsenal Island floor display.  THE PAID-IN-TERMINAL PARKING TICKET IS REQUIRED AT THE EXIT LANES. The exit lane reader will read the ticket as PAID, to expedite departure from the lot.

It is important to note that travelers are not “pre-paying” for parking before departing on a flight. The Pay-in-terminal option is meant to be used upon return home, prior to returning to your vehicle.

Q:  I feel more comfortable leaving my ticket in my car, for safekeeping. Is this an option?

A:  Yes, travelers may still opt to leave parking tickets in their vehicles and pay at the exit lanes. Select ANY LANE and process the ticket as instructed at the pay station.

PLEASE try to avoid placing the ticket on dashboard of vehicle! Not only do the tickets slip, but the sun may damage them and they may become unreadable by the scanner.

Lost Tickets: Lost tickets do incur a fee, and a travel itinerary is used for verification of the days parked in the lot. Please try to find your ticket in your vehicle (i.e. visor, cup holder, etc.) before driving to the exit lane.

Parking rates have not increased since 2012.

What is the difference between Short-Term and Long-Term?

Two things: Price and location. Short-term spaces are CLOSER to the terminal building and are a premium at $15.00 per day. Long-term spaces are only $7.00 per day. (See above chart.) Most people select short-term for pick up and drop off, greeting family, etc. There is no limit on the number of days you can park in the lot. If you exit the short-term lot through the gate arm and enter the long-term lot because that's where you intended to park, you must leave completely through the exit booth and re-enter to receive a long-term parking ticket. Otherwise, since you obtained a short-term ticket, your parking will be charged at the short-term rate.

Long-Term and Short-Term parking entrances

There are multiple long-term parking entrances as you follow the frontage road from the interstate or 69th Avenue/Airport Road. There is only one short-term parking entrance which is accessed from the left lanes as you approach the terminal building. If you miss the short-term entrance, you must circle around the frontage road again. Follow signs to "return to terminal".


Free Curb-Side Passenger Drop-Off and Pick-up

The inside and outside pick-up and drop-off lanes are open for ATTENDED VEHICLES ONLY. You may drop off or pick up passengers for free at the curb anytime. DO NOT leave your vehicle UNATTENDED while picking up or dropping off your party at the curb. Your full cooperation is appreciated. Please note that this allowance is subject to change at any time, in accordance with the TSA, or for reasons of National Security.

FREE Cell Lot For Passenger Pickup 

Picking up a friend, or family member? Use our FREE While-You-Wait Cell Lot, east of the airport in the vacant lot marked with signage. Simply park in the marked spaces, and await the call of your loved one. Once they’ve gotten their bags from bag claim, follow our frontage road to exit 6 or 7, to pick up your party. (These are the doors closest to baggage claim.) It’s Quick, It’s Easy, and It’s Free! Please note: No overnight parking allowed. This is for cell lot use ONLY.
