Curbside Parking

Curbside parking

YLW has introduced a new app-based contactless payment option for airport parking. Customers can now use the PayByPhone mobile app to pay for parking at meters located along the front curb, across from the terminal and at the south parking lot (previously Valet parking).

Using the PayByPhone app is easy. After you park at a meter, download the app (if you don't already have it on your smartphone), enter your parking location and length of stay, and pay directly through the app. Before a parking session expires, the app will send you a text reminder to extend your parking session remotely, rather than having to return to your car to feed the meter. For more information, visit

Curbside parking is available on the left side of the road in front of the terminal building.

The rate is $2.50 per 30 minutes.

Purchase a ticket from a meter or use the PayByPhone app and select location 15540.

Please note: Vehicles that park in the active passenger loading zone area will be towed.
