The new parking rates will apply to vehicles entering BWI Marshall Airport facilities on or after July 1, 2024. Vehicles parked before July 1 will pay the current rates.

These capital improvements will help ensure BWI Marshall remains a world-class airport.”

The additional revenue generated by the rate changes will be used to support numerous improvements for BWI Marshall’s parking service. A new guidance system is being installed in the Hourly Garage to ease customer navigation to available spaces. Eight new electric buses are being added to the airport’s parking shuttle fleet. Lighting improvements are being installed along the terminal roadway system. An airport parking reservation system is being developed. The new rates are also intended to help free up spaces in the Hourly Garage for short-term use by customers meeting or dropping-off passengers.
