Parking and Ground Transportation
Accessible Parking Options

The Philadelphia Parking Authority operates Short-Term, Garage and Economy parking facilities at the Airport. Accessible parking spaces are located close to the elevators in the garages, bus stops in the Economy Parking lot and bag claims in Short-Term (ground level of the garages) lots.

  • Short-Term (ground level of the garages) parking is recommended for brief visits of up to 1 hour.
  • Garage parking is less expensive than Short-Term parking for visits of more than 3 and 1/2 hours. Height limit of this garage is 6 ft. Oversize wheelchair equipped vans that are unable to enter the garages due to the height limit (6 feet) can park in Short-Term (ground level of the garages) and will be charged the less-expensive Garage rate for visits less than 24 hours. These vehicles must have Accessible license plates or placard displayed. For visits longer than 24 hours, oversize vehicles that cannot enter the garages can park in the Economy Lot.

The Airport operates a free shuttle bus that is wheelchair accessible and has “kneeling” capability to and from parking facilities.
