New Short Term Parking Rates At GRR Airport

If you were going to the Gerald R. Ford International Airport before the new year, you would have the option to pay an hourly rate with a daily maximum.

However, starting January 1st, that will be changing. There will not be any daily maximum.

Acoording to the GRR website,

"Effective January 1, 2024, the short-term parking lot will transition to an hourly rate and will no longer have a daily maximum.

As for the reasoning behind this change, it has not been disclosed publicly.


All that they have detailed is their intended use of the short term parking lot. It will only be for people who are picking up travelers.


This lot is intended only for those picking up guests. For travelers needing to park for multiple days, please park in one of the three long-term parking options."
