Relocated Long-Term Parking Lot Opens on June 14; 

Same Number of Parking Spaces and Footsteps to the Terminal 

MONTEREY, CA, June 6, 2024 - Monterey Regional Airport’s (MRY) Long-Term Parking Lot is on the move! Effective Friday, June 14, at 3:00 AM, MRY will open a relocated Long-Term Parking Lot to make way for constructing new airport safety enhancement projects. 

The relocated Long-Term Parking Lot entrance is located immediately before the airport’s existing Long-Term lot entrance. The relocated lot will offer the same number of parking spaces, and travelers will walk the same number of footsteps along a clearly marked pathway between the relocated lot and the terminal building. 

“Monterey Regional Airport is undergoing a metamorphosis, making it necessary to move Long-Term parking to a new location,” said Michael La Pier, Executive Director of Monterey Regional Airport. “The existing Long-Term lot will undergo construction to make way for a replacement passenger terminal and adjacent aircraft parking apron,” he continued. 

“We are committed to keeping Monterey Regional Airport easy, convenient and hassle-free for departing and arriving travelers, and thank them for their patience during construction,” La Pier concluded. 

The signage on Olmsted Road, the airport’s primary access roadway, will guide travelers to the relocated Long-Term lot entrance. Airport personnel will be onsite and available for the first few days of the lot relocation to answer any questions that customers may have. 

Parking rates will remain the same in the relocated Long-Term lot: 

  • First 10 minutes free, for those that may enter the lot inadvertently 
  • $1.00 per hour for the first three hours on Day 1, and 
  • $16.00 per day after three hours 

The relocated Long-Term lot will be fully automated, allowing customers to pay with a credit or debit card at the lot exit. 
Travelers requiring accessible parking and electric vehicle charging stations can continue to use MRY’s Short-Term Parking Lot, located next to the terminal, at the posted rates: 

While the similar number of parking spaces will be offered in the relocated Long-Term Lot as the existing Long-Term Lot, travelers living close to the airport are encouraged to consider using taxis, rideshares, or be dropped off and picked up at the terminal during the current peak summer travel season through Labor Day weekend. This will ensure parking spaces are available for those traveling to MRY from farther distances. 

Relocating the Long-Term lot is one of several facility and operational changes—including a replacement terminal building—that airport users will experience as they travel through MRY over the next few years.
