The most convenient of the airport's parking lots, the Hourly Garage is easily accessed from I-195 and is connected to the terminal by Skywalk bridges. The first hour of parking is free, making this parking lot affordable but extremely popular.
A huge covered parking structure linked to the terminal building by regular 24-hour shuttles, the Daily Garage has room for 8,200 vehicles and can be used for short-term or long-term parking.
The Express Service surface lots ring the Hourly Garage and are mainly for long-term parking. The location of the parking allows for quick exiting from the airport via I-195 and the lots are served by regular 24-hour shuttles.
Located farthest away from the BWI terminal building and utilized mainly by vacationers, the Long-Term parking lots are still relatively convenient as they are linked to the terminal by closely scheduled shuttles that ensure you won't miss your flight no matter what the weather is like.
Baltimore Washington International Airport's parking was designed with disabled travelers in mind and there are plenty of designated spaces located near to the ramps and elevators of the parking garages.
