To offer more parking options to area travelers, a new Express Shuttle Parking Lot is now open at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF). The new lot offers an additional 974 parking spaces on airport property and is available for long term parking use with courtesy bumper-to-bumper shuttle service provided to the terminal.
“We’ve seen a tremendous growth in passenger traffic at SDF and with this comes the need for more parking,” said Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “The new Express Shuttle Parking Lot provides our travelers another option that is affordable and convenient to make someone’s trip easier.”
The courtesy bumper-to-bumper shuttle service allows a traveler to park in the lot, unload any luggage and belongings directly onto an awaiting shuttle and then be immediately transported to the terminal building for their flight. Shuttle service is offered daily beginning at 4 a.m. until the last flight arrives. To ensure passengers are able to quickly access the lot at any time, red shuttle vehicles marked for Express Shuttle Parking are dedicated to providing transportation to and from the terminal to this lot. Up to three shuttles will provide transport during peak travel periods. A separate parking shuttle will continue to provide transportation to and from the airport’s Surface Lot.
Rates for the Express Shuttle Parking Lot are $8 per day per vehicle or $48 per vehicle per week with the seventh day free. The lot is located in the area of the former Cell Phone Lot, accessible via Administration Drive, which is near the East Runway and a favorite for many plane spotters. Because of this interest from the aviation community, there is a two-hour grace period to access the lot free of charge.
The new lot was constructed by Messer Construction for $2.4 million and is managed by SP+ Airport Services, who oversees all parking operations at the Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport.
Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport is served by six airlines offering flights to more than 30 nonstop destinations including 19 of the region’s top 20 domestic markets. With just one stop, travelers from across the region can reach more than 460 destinations in the U.S. and worldwide.
