SEA Airport Parking Garage Rates To Rise April 1 – KIRO 7 News Seattle
Parking rates at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) parking lot are set to increase April 1, the airport announced Tuesday.
General and Terminal Direct hourly rates will increase by $1, with daily rates increasing by $2 for General Parking and $3 for Terminal Direct. Weekly rates for general parking will increase by $20, while Passport monthly rates will increase by $50.
The rate increase is intended to help fund projects that improve the customer experience, such as the garage’s new automated parking guidance system, which is already installed on the first two floors of the eight-story garage.
The $21.8 million system is one of the largest in the country with more than 12,000 booths. It features LED lighting and smart camera sensors to indicate space availability and help customers find electric vehicle and ADA-accessible parking spaces.
The sensors also feature camera-based license recognition technology to help customers locate their vehicles and improve parking policy enforcement.
Installation of the parking guidance system will continue throughout this year and is expected to be completed in early 2023.
The fare increase will also support other projects at the airport, such as the new international arrivals facility, the expansion of the C Concourse building, the SEA Gateway project and the South Satellite refurbishment programme.
