Electric carts are available throughout Lindbergh Terminal, but are not available at Humphrey Terminal.

The electric carts are scheduled to pick up passengers every 10-15 minutes. Find “cart stops” directly inside security and at every gate along the C, D, E, F and G concourses. Consult your airline for services elsewhere. Electric carts operated by Globe Aviation Services display signs on the cart indicating which concourses they serve. Carts operated by Primeflight Aviation Services do not display signs as its are not assigned to a specific concourse. Make sure to ask cart drivers before boarding if they are going your way.
