Rental Car Facilities and Automated People Mover
Analysis concluded that the airport’s rental car facilities will reach capacity in 2016. To facilitate continued growth, the master plan includes a consolidated rental car facility on the south part of the airport campus, near the airport entrance. This allows for expansion of rental car operations at the airport while decongesting roadways, passenger drop-off and pick-up curbsides and reclaiming 1,200 parking spaces in the airport’s long-term parking garage that currently houses rental car operations.
The rental car facility will be connected to the main terminal by a 1.3-mile automated people mover. The people mover will also take economy parking garage customers, airport employees and passengers accessing a curbside located in the consolidated rental car facility by public transportation, commercial and private vehicles, to the main terminal.
The people mover could ultimately extend off the airport campus to a multi-modal center in the West Shore Business District near Interstate 275 to connect to a regional transportation system.
