Overflow Parking

Walking and Shuttles from Overflow

We offer several overflow parking lots, which open based on logistical factors like shuttle service, staffing, and weather conditions. Please note that shuttle service may not be available for every lot, so be prepared for a 15-minute walk. However, you might reach the terminal in five (5) minutes or less, depending on your overflow parking spot. 

If shuttles are offered, there will be signage indicating shuttle service. Shuttles run every 10 minutes from the designated lot.

Overflow Rates and Charges

Good news – overflow lot pricing matches our surface lot pricing at $12 a day*, ensuring your convenience and budget are both well taken care of.
*The Yellow Overflow Lot is $14 a day.

Overflow lot charges apply daily and start at 12:00 AM. So, if you park at 11:59 PM, you’ll be charged for that calendar day and the following day when you check out.

Simple Payment

Making a payment for overflow parking is a breeze with our QR code system. Just enter your vehicle details and your expected duration of stay. And if your plans change, no worries; you can update the duration at any time.
