What types of hybrids qualify?

All hybrid cars, SUVs and light trucks up to 8500 lbs. that are included on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s List of Eligible Low Emission and Energy-Efficient Vehicles found at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/documents/ld-hwy/hov/420d14001.pdf.

I have lost my parking ticket. How will you know how much I owe?

If you have been at the airport less than 24 hours, your charge will be the daily maximum of the facility in which you parked. If your vehicle has been parked at the airport longer than 24 hours, our vehicle license plate inventory will indicate how many days your vehicle has been parked in our facilities and you will be charged for that number of days.

Are your parking facilities secure?

Our parking facilities are monitored by parking employees and patrolled frequently by 24-hour security guards and the Denver Police Department. Our facilities are well lit and the Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert shuttle lots are fenced.

What if I’m going to be gone longer than 30 days?

Special arrangements must be made in advance if parking in excess of 30 days. If arrangements are not made, vehicles parked over 30 days will be considered abandoned and will be towed at the owner’s expense. Call (303) 342-4645 to make arrangements.

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available in all airport parking facilities (except Level 3 of the garage). Accessible parking spaces are available in areas nearest the Terminal in Terminal Garage West and Terminal Garage East (Levels 1, 2, 4 and 5). Accessible spaces are located near the shelters in the Economy West and Economy East parking lots, and at the Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert Shuttle lots. All vans and buses serving these lots are lift-equipped. Wheelchair or electric cart service is available from your airline. For more information call (303) 342-4645.

How will I know if there will be parking available when I get to the airport?

Before heading to the airport, check the availability of all parking areas by visiting www.flydenver.com/park from your computer or mobile device, or by calling our parking hotline at (303) DIA-PARK (342-7275) and choose option 1. Once on Peña Boulevard watch for parking availability signs as conditions change often. You may make an advanced reservation for a guaranteed parking space in the east or west garage with DIA Reserved Parking. A $4 daily reservation fee will be collected at the time of your reservation and daily garage parking fees will be collected at the time of your exit.

Is there free parking available while waiting to pick up an arriving passenger?

The Cell Phone Waiting Lot is a place where a driver can wait for an arriving passenger free of charge. This area is called a "Cell Phone Waiting Lot" because arriving passengers usually notify the person picking them up via cell phone. The waiting area is located approximately three miles from Jeppesen Terminal along the north side of Peña Boulevard on 77th Avenue. More >>

Facility Closures

Various closures may occur throughout the parking facilities. Watch for construction signs as you enter parking areas.

How often do the shuttles run and where do they drop off and pick up at the terminal?

Free shuttle service operates 24 hours, 7 days a week, every 10 minutes. Shuttles pick up at the shelters in the Economy, Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert Shuttle lots. The terminal drop-off and pick-up for Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert is on Level 5 outside doors 511 and 513. Economy lot drop off is near doors 116 (west) and 117 (east) at the south end of the terminal.

The Economy lot shuttle stops are subject to change during Hotel and Transit Center Program construction and walking distance to the terminal may be increased without notice. Customers with walking limitations may choose to park at the Pikes Peak Shuttle lot where terminal drop-off and pick-up locations are closer to the terminal doors.
