Construction is nearing completion of a second economy parking lot offering 2,200 covered spaces at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). Although scheduled to open in March, 75 percent of the ecopark 2 lot located on Will Clayton Parkway will "soft open" late February.
Like the current ecopark lot at IAH, ecopark 2 will offer a cost efficient on-airport parking option, including quick access to the terminal buildings via a free 24/7 shuttle service.
The project addresses an increased demand, where record-setting passenger numbers continue to rise. More than 41 million passengers traveled through Bush Intercontinental Airport in 2014 — and those numbers are expected to steadily rise.
“Our customers want affordable and convenient parking options, and the new ecopark 2 lot will get them to and from the terminals quickly for only $5 a day,” said Parking Marketing Manager Anthony Shipp.
The current ecopark lot at IAH offers access to more than 8,500 parking spaces, with 1,650 of those providing drivers with a covered spot.
Reservations will be available for both ecopark lots and can be made online. Otherwise, parking availability is based on a first-come, first-serve basis.
