About Our Shuttles

Enjoy a short, free ride between our Park & Ride Lots and Terminals 1 and 2. Our shuttles stop at multiple covered, transparent shelters throughout each lot, ensuring only a short walk from your car.

Each of our 50-seat buses includes multiple luggage racks, is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and lowers to the ground at each stop to provide easy entry and exit.
