CRASH AND BURN: Fort Lauderdale Airport To Eliminate Cheap Parking

Reservation system still advertised, doesn't exist

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport continues its death spiral into one of the nation’s least customer-friendly airports with its latest announcement that all “cheap” parking will be eliminated by late Spring.

The airport announced that its popular off-site economy parking will be converted to employee parking in May. Employee parking — currently occupying 3100 spots on the roof of the Cypress garage — will become available to the general public for the current on-site parking price of $15/day. Valet parking remains $25/day.

The announcement comes as the airport is now years behind re-opening the pedestrian crosswalks which have been inexplicably closed for what the airport calls “a public art project.” Passengers daily risk death as they attempt to run — with bags — from airport terminals to parking garages while BSO’s traffic deputies routinely do nothing as cars whiz by on the airport’s main road.

An airport spokesperson claimed — on 610WIOD in November — that the crosswalks would be open by the end of 2016.

The airport’s heavily promoted “reserved parking” space program remains the equivalent of “vapor ware” — or, in present-day political terms, a “Trumpian truth.” It’s been advertised with signage for two years but doesn’t exist.
