MEMpark, On-Airport Parking for $6 a Day Opens

The total public automobile parking experience at Memphis International Airport has been transformed and is now branded MEMpark with the opening of the new seven-level consolidated parking and car rental facility north of the original three-level short-term and long-term garage. The first phase of the Ground Transportation Center at Memphis International Airport opened just before the Thanksgiving holiday. The new economy parking offering, which occupies levels three though seven of the structure, gives travelers 4,500 secure parking spaces for just $6.00 a day—lower priced than off-airport lots. Economy parking at MEMpark is conveniently located only a short moving walkway from the entrance to the airport terminal.

To promote the new parking and the low economy parking rates, the airport has launched an information campaign building on the “Park Smarter. Not Farther.” concept, with billboard messages, radio ads, print ads, and video spots on the Airport’s CNN gate monitors. With parking at $6.00 and such easy access to the airport itself, customers can literally “Ditch the Shuttle” that has traditionally been associated with on and off airport parking. In fact, two of the motivations behind the Ground Transportation Center were environmental and customer service. Economy parking at MEMpark eliminates the need for any polluting, unpredictable and often inconvenient pick-up and drop-off shuttle traffic for travelers.

MEMpark economy parking features convenient, real-time directional and capacity signage that allows parkers to know space availability on each floor as they enter the facility, thus saving time and frustration. Once parked, the terminal is reached via a convenient 840-foot-long series of moving walkways, under attractive weather protecting fabric canopies. Landscaped for maximum visual effect, the walkway features architectural elements, fountains and vegetation as passengers approach the distinct martini glass architecture of the terminal building. The moving walkways occupy space at the below-grade level, down the center of the older three-level parking deck, which is exclusively used for the short-term and long-term MEMpark experience.

In early 2013, the bottom two levels of the Ground Transportation Center will open, featuring the new home for all airport rental car agencies. Once again, easy access to the terminal and the elimination of polluting and inconvenient shuttles will be an immediate benefit.
