Tucson Airport Begins Work on New Automated Parking Revenue System

The Tucson Airport Authority begins work this week on installation of the infrastructure for a new automated parking revenue system that will replace the current system at all Tucson International Airport (TIA) public parking lots later this Fall.
Pay-on-foot machines are being installed outside the TIA terminal baggage claim, and near the elevators inside the parking garage. The machines will accept credit and debit cards and are designed to facilitate faster exits from the TAA parking lots.

In addition to the four pay-on-foot machines, we will have automated pay stations at the exit lanes in all the airport parking lots, explained Fred Brinker, TAA Senior Director of Planning & Development. Airport visitors will now be able to pay for their parking in advance using the pay-on-foot machines or by using the automated parking lot exits. Both the main terminal and economy parking lots will continue to have a cashier for those visitors who prefer completing their transaction in person or need assistance.

The project includes new roadway signage that will more clearly identify the parking options available and inform customers in advance if certain lots are full. The Tucson Airport Authority operates four parking lots and customer service and convenience are our top priority, said Bonnie Allin, TAA President/CEO. These enhancements are a reflection of our commitment to better serving our customers.

Later this Summer TAA plans to rename the parking lots as follows:

ParkN Save and ParkN Save Covered become Economy and Economy Covered; Short-Term becomes Hourly; Long-Term becomes Daily;Garage remains Garage; Phone and Go becomes Cell Phone Waiting.

The $2.4 million project is being funded by airport revenues. The entire project is expected to be complete and operational by mid-Fall.
