How safe is the parking lot? Is there a high break in rate there?
I'm not seeing an answer to the question of safty at the Sac airport. Where can I find it?
We have parked in the airport parking lot many times and never had any trouble. Keep anything of value out of sight. We're going to be parking there for 16 days.
I am going to be in kansas for about 16 days and wanted to know what lot I should park my truck into. Also, I was trying to find out what lot I should put it in but cant seem to find that or the prices
Park in the Economy lot on Aviation Drive at a daily rate of $9/day (shuttles to the terminals run every 15-20 minutes - however, shuttle waiting time is affected by peak hours between 4-10am and 8pm & midnight.). Parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more parking info, call 916-874-0670.
I parked my car on level 2 of the parking structure on Nov 18th and departed on Nov 23rd. I expected the $102 charge ($17/day for 6 days) when I exited the parking structure but was surprised to find another charge for $5 on my credit card titled CityofSac ParkingFacGar on my monthly statement. The $5 charge was posted to my account on Nov 21st (when I was on the east coast). Is this a new tax or fee in addition to the daily charge? They didn't have my credit card information until I paid the $102 charge on Nov 23rd, so they must have back-dated the $5 charge when I exited, and it is not listed on the $102 receipt I received when leaving the parking facility.
Sac Airport is not in Sac City. This charge is likely not related to the airport. Are you sure you didn't park in a city garage or parking meter prior to going to the airport?
I would like to leave a car at the airport for when my daughter comes in, that she can then pick up and drive home. I assume I cannot use my credit card so how can she get out of the lot?
If I park at long term parking for a week and my returning flight arrives at SMF at 11:30 PM will I be able to get my vehicle right away?
1. Shuttle buses to the Economy run every 10-15 mins up to midnight. You can park in Daily Parking lot next to the Garage across from Terminal A on Airport Blvd. East, or at Economy lot on Aviation Drive. For current parking information call 916-874-0670
Where is it reccomended to park if your going to leave a vehicle at the airport for 2 weeks?
1. The parking garage across from Terminal A connects to A & B terminals;
2. Daily parking right next to the garage is only for Terminal
3. Economy parking serves both terminal and is on Aviation drive, across from the rental car building & lot. Shuttle service is provided at 15-20 minute intervals.
Is there a shuttle that takes you from economy parking to the terminal? Or do you have to use the taxi service?

do i need a reservation for economy at term.A , can i stay 6 days
No. Just pull a ticket when you enter and pay when you leave. I do not know if there is an upper limit on parking days, but six days should be fine.
how do i pay when i have no ticket. the gate was open this morning and the ticket machine didt work (9/23/11)
What does "Daily max (24 hrs): $9" mean? Does this mean you can only park 1 day at a time? I need to park 4 days.
Thank you!
Usually airports charge first by half hour, then hours, and at a certain hourly cutoff - say at the 7th hour, that's the maximum daily rate for 7-12 hrs. If it says 24 hrs it will be for 2 days.
Please answer the question. The sign says $9 per day and in parenthesis it states (24 hours max).if a day is 24 hours will that not mean $9 per day? I see your point that airport have cut-offs and I should expect to pay an extra day at $9
Expect to pay $9 per day (each 24 hours) in an Economy Lot.. Yes, you can stay 4 days :-).
If I fly out on friday @ 4:30 p.m. and return home tues. @10:00 pm. that is 5 days. If I park in economy parking, can I be there 5 days @ $9 a day?
If I fly out on friday @ 4:45 PM and come home tues @ 10:00, I will be there 5 days. Can I be there 5 days? Will it be $9 a day?
Can I park in economy parking more than 5 days?
What is the longest I can park my car at the airport if I'm flying Jet Blue. Can I park for 10 days and will it be $9.00 a day?
How long can I stay in long term parking, are there coupons available?
It means a new day begins every 24 hrs after the time of entry, and the MOST you can be charged during any single day is $9. For example, if the lot charges $1/half hour and you stay 5 hours, you'll be charged the $9 max -- not $10. If you stay 22 hrs, you'll also be charged the $9 max -- not $44. When you begin a 2nd day, the process begins again. You pay $9 for your 1st day, then pay by the half-hour until you reach the $9 max.
