Short term parking garage
Levels 4-9 of the Landside Terminal Building house the short term parking garage. The garage was built with the airport
complex in 1971 for added passenger convenience. Originally three levels, the garage was expanded in 1982 to six levels
and contains 3,500 spaces.
Long term parking garage
Long term parking was originally a large lot sitting on what is today, the present-day long term parking garage. The
garage was built in several phases from 1990 to 1997 after increased passenger traffic swamped the parking lot beyond capacity.
A monorail (situated on Level Five of the garage) connects passengers to and from the short term parking garage (Level Five)
and the Landside Terminal. The garage can hold a total of 7,400 spaces on six levels.
Economy parking garage
The garage has 5,600 spaces and is divided into two color-coded sections - purple and gold (yellow). There is also a surface
lot and overflow lot for use during the holidays. A free shuttle service takes passengers to the terminal drop-off
twenty-four hours a day.
Cell phone waiting lot
In an effort to decrease congestion within the Landside Terminal, particularly the baggage claim areas, a cell phone
waiting lot was built alongside one of the remote overflow lots. It includes a large four panel flight status board,
showing up-to-the-minute arrival information. This allows awaiting family members and friends of arriving passengers
to wait in their vehicles until the passenger calls. Then the arriving passenger(s) can be picked up curbside at the
Landside Terminal without creating curbside congestion problems. The lot has portable bathrooms, WiFi, recorded CCTV
surveillance and around-the-clock police patrols.
