when do you pay for long term parking?
I am flying out Jetblue, I have my handicapped daughter with me and will need a wheelchair once in the airport. What parking structure is the closest to the checkin?
The Big Blue Deck is the closest to where JetBlue is located.
Is parking at the Blue Deck mostly covered or mostly open? Thanks.
It's mostly covered.
Is there covered long term parking on the big blue north terminal lot
Yes, there is.
Hi. I have a 6am flight departing on Delta, returning in a few days on Southwest, so I want to park at the North terminal. Will the ground transportation from one terminal to the other be running at 4:15am? The airport website says every 2 minutes and doesn't mention anything about closing.
The shuttle operates every 10 minutes and should be available at that time, although may not run as frequently - http://www.metroairport.com/GroundTransportation/OtherTransportation/TerminaltoTerminal.aspx Perhaps you should park at an offsite facility such as Qwik Park or Airlines Parking that runs shuttles to both terminals.
I'm flying out of Detroit early AM. Thinking of parking at the Big Blue Parking Garage because it is so much cheaper for long term parking. Is there a shuttle to the McNamara Terminal? How far to walk? How long to walk?
You can't walk from the Big Blue Deck to the McNamara Terminal - there is a shuttle bus and it takes about 15 minutes.
The Big Blue Deck at DTW, which is connected to the North Terminal by a walkway on Level 4, got a face lift: new moving walkways for the entire length of Level 4's deck. Also, escalators are now centralized next to the North Terminal's ground transport center, giving you an alternative to elevators when moving between the four levels.
I noticed the parking fee rolldown at Detroit Metro - you can now park long-term in the Big Blue Deck for a mere $10/day!
I discovered that if you park at the Big Blue Deck of DTW, you have a choice of walking or taking the free shuttle to either the North or the McNamara terminals.
