Do you have ADA Accessible employee parking?

Alternate arrangements will be made for any employee requiring ADA accessible parking. A DMV issued Authorization Letter must be presented to substantiate handicapped license plates and/or placards.

What if I ride a motorcycle or bicycle?

Gates will not open for alternate forms of transportation like motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles due to their smaller size, even with a Prox Card. Access is through the far right lane of the garage entrance marked short-term parking.

Motorcycles and mopeds may park for free inside the parking garage in the designated motorcycle parking area.

Designated motorcycle parking lanes are located near the entrance of the parking garage (southwest corner of the garage on the first-floor only).

Bicycle racks are available in two locations: On the first floor of the parking garage, in the southwest corner near Motorcycle Parking, and just outside of Door D at the north end of Baggage Claim.
