New Parking Garage Construction Impacts ecopark 1 at Hobby Airport
ecopark 1 customers being redirected to ecopark 2
March 18, 2014
Effective today, the Hobby Airport ecopark 1 economy parking lot will permanently close in order to make way for both the construction of the new multi-level parking garage and roadway improvements.
Customers are being directed to use ecopark 2 (located to the east and northeast of the covered garage). These parking lots hold more than 1,000 parking spaces and costs only $8 per day. ecopark 2 provides free shuttle service to and from the airport terminal.
Customers can also park in the terminal parking garage for $19 a day and/or utilize the valet parking service with covered parking and additional perks for $25 a day.
All vehicles located at ecopark 1 past March 28 will be relocated to ecopark 2. Customers who need assistance in locating their vehicle can use the courtesy phone at ecopark 2 or call (713) 641-7770.
The existing ecopark 1 lot, which is located directly to the west of the airport’s covered parking garage, is closing in order to make room for a permanent parking garage, which will bring an additional 3,000 spaces to the Hobby Airport parking inventory.
These improvements are taking place in anticipation of the arrival of international air service at Hobby Airport. A new five-gate terminal facility is currently being constructed by Southwest Airlines and is slated for completion in the latter part of 2015. The arrival of regional international air service is expected to generate an additional 1 million passengers at Hobby Airport on an annual basis and as a result, steps must be taken to improve the airport’s infrastructure to accommodate the increase in passenger traffic.
