BWI Airport Parking Tips

  • Both BWI garages use “Smart park” technology that will guide you to an open space, so you don’t have to circle endlessly hoping for a good spot. You can even pay for your parking before heading back to your car with BWI’s “Pay & Go” machines that can be found in the bus lobby areas. These garages are designated as short-term parking, so if you have long-term parking needs, you will save money by using the long-term parking lots.
  • To get real-time information on parking availability, tune into radio station 1040 AM, as you get near the airport.
