Give me a map of parking garages that is clear in relation to the terminal I am flying out of. Post the cost. Make it easily visible. This is not 1994 why have you not made this easier? This is the kind of thing that makes everyone else in CA laugh at Sacramento. The site map as is is incomprehenisible. I want to know where to go tomorrow morning to park and then catch my flight efficiently. Please have someone redesign your site who is not familiar with the Sac airport and design it for others also not familiar. This is not a cutting edge concept. Just step up for crying out loud.

All signs at airport and web site say long term remote parking is $9/day. I was charged not only $10/day but for a 26 1/2 hour stay was charged $20. $9 per day plus $2 for every additional hour comes out to $15. Not a big deal, but I hate feeling taken advantage of...
Today we had same experience. I didn't see any notice of cost but this receipt says $10 a day. The car was dropped at 11 a.m 9/1 and picked up at 3 pm 9/4. Which is 4 calendar days but not 96 hours.
I've read the comments, my flight lands at Sac. at 11:55 pm, You say shuttles don't run after midnight, How am I to get my car??
Free shuttle service from daily A surface lot and Economy lot at both terminals of SMF run now on a 24-hour basis.
I intend to park in the long term economy parking lot for 10 days. When I return at 11:30pm will there be an attendant on duty late at night so I can pay cash? I'd rather not deal with a credit card machine and call button.
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.
