FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Roughly three years after announcing its ‘reserved parking’ program, the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport isn’t responding to one simple question: “where is it?”
The ability for passengers to reserve parking in advance by using an app was heavily promoted when it was announced. But years later, it still hasn’t become a reality, despite signage at the airport and even a placeholder on the official airport website.
Fort Lauderdale Airport spokesperson Greg Meyer didn’t respond to a request for information from BocaNewsNow.com. There have been no public statements regarding the issue from airport CEO Mark Gale who joined Fort Lauderdale from Philadelphia International Airport which he ran for several years. In union-controlled Philly, it’s easy to blame organized labor when something doesn’t happen as expected.
In Broward County, issues tend to be management-related.
The airport’s yearly holiday press release states that more than 100k travelers will move through FLL daily during the two week holiday period, and promote technology items like the use of SunPass to pay for parking and frequently but not always functional “green and red light” parking system that displays a space’s availability with a red or green light.
But if you’re hoping to reserve a space online, good luck. It’s not happening yet. Maybe next year. Or the year after. Or the year after that.
