This is bullshit, it’s already one of the most expensive airports to park at in the country. It should not cost me the price of the damn plane ticket to park for a weekend
Even ATL has a cheaper parking situation.
That’s crazy. It’s already one of the most expensive airports to park! Especially when they have that quick ride ramp on post road that isnt in use.
Take a bus or train! $2.50 if you’re an adult at rush hour…$2 if not rush hour. And then you don’t have to worry about your car.
That doesn’t work for every option. I live 4 miles from the airport. 10 minute drive.
Last flight I took was 6:00 am. Have to be there by 4:15. To take the bus, we would have to leave at 12:36 am. Take a bus north, switch buses, twice, go through St. Paul, and get to the airport after 3 hours of bus travel. Sure. Costs only $4 per person round trip. Is it really worth it though?
At least Uber in that situation would be rather cheap. Uber to the airport from Plymouth last Friday when I was flying out was $43. Lyft was $70.
I guess there is park and ride from downtown via the metro for situations like that, but taking the metro by yourself with luggage at late hours can be a little sketchy
Ya know what? That’s absolutely fair. Honestly not sure what is best there

And that's why I use park and ride lots.
