With the new eParkElite program, travelers going through Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP) are able to find space available at the terminal of their choice – regardless of how busy the airport is.
“eParkElite is geared toward busy frequent travelers who place a premium on time-saving and convenience,” says Jeff Hamiel, executive director of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which owns and operates MSP. “By becoming an eParkElite member, you gain assurance you will always find a spot available at the terminal your flight departs.”
Members are given a small transmitter to place on their vehicle’s dashboard. As they approach a designated parking area at either terminal, the parking ramp gate arm goes up automatically, marking the time they entered the parking area (for billing purposes) and giving them access to available parking spaces. Capacity is managed to ensure there are always enough spaces for program members.
Transmitters may also be shared with other travelers, which can give multiple employees from the same company the parking benefit, assuming only one person is traveling at a time.
There is a one-time $20 activation fee, and members pay $95 per month; regular hourly and daily Terminal-1 Lindbergh e-Park rate applies for the time they are parked in an airport ramp. Charges are automatically billed to the member’s account, and members can check their account and print a receipt online.
