In July, the Port Authority began issuing a new surcharge for summer travelers who do not pre-book parking, citing a major increase in demand for airport parking. They stated that the airports will be working with multiple partners, including airlines, travel agencies and other stakeholders to publicize parking capacity constraints at LGA, JFK and EWR, recommending that air travelers pre-book parking spaces to secure a spot and to avoid surcharges for parking customers who do not pre-book. Daily rates remained the same for travelers who pre-book parking.
Recently, Diana Clemente, president of the Black Car Assistance Corporation, brought this issue to the attention of her organization’s members. Luckily, the hourly rates for the first three hours will remain unchanged for short-term “meet and greet” customers, so this new surcharge will not affect black car drivers picking up clients.
For personal travel and parking, it’s important to be aware of the new fees. For a full breakdown of the new parking rates, click here.
