If you’re flying out of the Cleveland Hopkins Airport there are basically two ways to get there: drive yourself or be transported. If you’re one of those comfy travelers that like to leave the car at home and start vacationing the minute you leave the house, then taxi or shuttle is your poison of choice; but if you’re a self-sufficient traveler then you probably prefer to get there by your own means and use parking Cleveland airport that offers many alternatives to leave your vehicle, catering to all budgets and logistical needs.
The airport Parking & Transit Map –available on the website- shows the Green Lot, a smart garage very close to the gates, ideally located for short trips or drop-offs and pick-ups. The daily rate is $20. The first three hours are only $5 and Smart Carte is only available in this parking lot. Then there are other alternatives that are more economic as the distance from the gates increases. The Red Lot goes for $18/day, the Blue Lot has a daily rate of $16, the Orange Lot is one dollar cheaper per day and the Brown Lot is only $11 dollars; and for those who like the VIP treatment, the Curbside Valet hasta a daily rate of $25 and offers a range of hourly values for those express visits to the airport.
