Sure Sign Of Spring: Crowded Parking Ramps At MSP

By Adam Carter, NewsRadio 830 WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There were problems for people hoping to park at the Terminal 1, formerly known as Lindbergh Terminal, Wednesday morning — a full ramp.

As spring approaches, mid-week parking at the airport gets very busy. This is for a couple of reasons, according to Pat Hogan, spokesman for the Metropolitan Airports Commission.

“Toward the end of the week and the beginning of the week they aren’t traveling as much (as they do midweek),” said Hogan.

He said when you combine the business travelers with the increase in vacationers this time of year, the ramps fill up.

Hogan said they have real-time parking updates on the airport’s website. He also reminds travelers that light rail transit rides are free between the two terminals, so if you can’t park at Terminal 1, you can try to park at the Terminal 2, formerly known as the Humphrey Terminal.
