RNO Embarks On Ground Transportation Center Project

The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority has received approval to embark on a ground transportation center (GTC) project designed to improve ground transportation services at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO). RNO has partnered with Conrac Solutions for a public-private partnership to construct the new facility.

“We’re proud of this unprecedented Public-Private Partnership with Conrac Solutions,” said Daren Griffin, president and CEO of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. “This collaboration is a significant $299 million private sector investment, marking a historic moment for our region. Conrac Solutions’ proven track record in developing innovative ConRAC facilities aligns with our vision for revolutionizing ground transportation at RNO.” 

Recognizing the parking challenges faced by travelers, the GTC project aims to alleviate congestion by relocating rental car facilities from the parking garage to the new center. This move will free up hundreds of parking spaces currently occupied by rental car companies, providing passengers with easier access to parking and reducing overall traffic flow on the airport’s roadway. 

The new facility will span four floors and occupy a ground lease of approximately 440,220 square feet and will be accessed by a covered pedestrian access a short distance from the airport terminal. It will initially accommodate nine rental car brands. A quick turnaround area will be comprised of six car washes, three maintenance bays, twenty-four fuel positions, and ample vehicle storage.
