Beginning Monday, Nov. 15, you can catch an Uber or Lyft ride at the designated area on the north lower level near the north parking deck.

Airport officials said the dedicated area was set aside to help increase traffic efficiency and flow while allowing rideshare drivers the ability to enter and exit the lot much faster. Since the area is for rideshares only, it eliminates personal and commercial vehicles along with buses competing with the rideshare drivers for parking in the same area.

The airport also announced they are moving the North Economy parking lot a short distance from its previous location. For passengers wishing to use the lot, they’ll need to proceed on the same path, but they’ll turn left into the lot approximately 100 yards before the former entrance.

Airport officials aid signage for both of these changes will be posted throughout the airport property with the hope of limiting any confusion.
