ecopark 2 at Hobby Airport now offers customers a total of 1,022 parking spaces.
Customers are now finding hundreds of additional parking spaces at William P. Hobby Airport’s ecopark 2 Parking Lot. The Houston Airport System has expanded the number of spaces located within the economy parking lot, from a total of 356 to 1,022 spaces.

“Passengers at Hobby Airport place a premium on value,” says Houston Airport System Parking Director, Liliana Rambo, CAPP. “With this in mind, it’s not surprising that ecopark 2 would prove itself to be an extremely popular option with our customers. We just want to make sure that we’re keeping up with the demand.”

The additional 666 parking spaces became available to the public on November 20, just in time for the rush of holiday traffic that’s expected to hit at Hobby Airport.

In addition to the November and December holiday rush, Hobby Airport has recently experienced a string of record-setting passenger totals, with 2013 expected to set yet another all-time high.

“This is a remarkable time in the rich history of Hobby Airport,” Rambo says. “The demand for service at Hobby Airport has never been this high before and we’re going to do everything possible to accommodate those customers and exceed their expectations.”

Part of reaching that goal includes a free shuttle bus operation, regularly taking passengers to and from the parking area and terminal building. Shuttles will run between the two stops on regular intervals between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Customers will also be able to expedite the exit process by using check-out machines capable of accepting either cash or credit cards. Should customers need to speak with an attendant, a “focus point” camera system will electronically connect them with a service employee.

Parking rates for the ecopark 2 parking lot are as follows:

0 – 3 hrs: $4.62 + tax
3 – 24 hrs: $7.39 + tax
