Short-term and long-term parking garage rates will increase $3 per day beginning April 1 at Portland International Airport. Existing hourly parking garage rates of $3 will remain the same, as will all other airport parking rates.

Short-term garage daily maximum rates will increase to $27; long-term garage daily maximum rates will increase to $21. The increase applies to vehicles that enter the garage on or after April 1. Vehicles parked in the garage before April 1 will pay the current rate when exiting.

Revenues raised by PDX parking fees support future airport parking and transportation improvements, such as parking and roadway expansion and maintenance. Short-term garage rates last increased in 2006; long-term garage rates last increased in 2012. In part, the rate increases will encourage more use of the airport’s economy parking lot, easing demand on the parking garages, which are often full mid-week.

PDX parking options remaining at current prices, include the economy parking lot at $10 per day with the seventh day free, and Gold Key Valet at $30 per day. Rates for parking spaces for people with disabilities remain $10 per day, and parking for motorcycles and bicycles remain free.
