Passengers flying out of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) are now able to take a shuttle from the economy parking lots to the terminal. Those using the garages will be able to better find open parking spots, too. 

 GSP’s parking upgrades include an overflow parking lot, an expanded cell phone lot, a new parking guidance system for the airport’s garages and shuttle bus service from GSP’s Economy Lots. 

 “We are looking forward to providing new services to improve the experiences that passengers have while at GSP,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO. “Some of these updates, including the shuttle bus service, have been suggested through customer surveys. We take that feedback seriously and attempt to meet those requests when possible.” 

 Economy Parking Lot A is GSP’s new overflow parking lot. As the airport continues to see a rise in passenger traffic, Economy Parking Lot A will eventually have regular hours of operation. It also only accepts credit and debit card payments. The existing Economy Parking Lot is now Economy Parking Lot B.

 In all, the airport has 443 new parking spaces. 

 Park Assist, a parking guidance system, was recently installed in both parking garages at GSP. Those entering parking garages should be on the lookout for signage indicating rows with open parking spaces, including the number of available stalls. 

 Park Assist uses smart-sensor camera-based technology that can recognize license plates while displaying real-time parking availability. If a passenger forgets where they parked, they can type their license plate number into a kiosk by the garages’’second-floor elevators to locate their vehicle.

 “People often have a lot on their mind when traveling and many of us have experienced times when we can’t remember where we parked before a flight or feel like we’re wasting precious time while anxiously searching for an open parking space,” said Scott Carr, GSP’s vice president of commercial business and communications. “This new parking amenity should make flying from GSP a little easier.”

 Parking costs at GSP will undergo a slight adjustment. Starting Oct. 1, Economy Lot prices will be $6 a day and Sky Lot prices will be $9 a day. Garage prices will be $15 a day. Valet prices will be $17 a day. Daily Lot prices will remain the same at $9 a day. 

 The new parking lot was designed by Michael Baker International and GLF Construction served as the contractor. AVCON provided construction phase engineering assistance.
