In an effort to help fund airport capital improvements, the Port of Pasco voted today to increase the daily parking rates at Tri-Cities Airport (PSC).
Beginning March 1, 2024, the rates for airport parking will be:
The additional parking revenue will help pay for more than $2 million in parking lot improvements scheduled for 2024, including an expansion of the credit card parking lot and new payment technology. Parking fees would also help fund the airport’s long-term capital improvement projects, which include an expansion of the ticketing, administration, and baggage claim areas; one to two more aircraft gates; and the addition of jet bridges. These improvements are expected to cost approximately $140 million over the next 10 – 12 years.
“The Tri-Cities Airport doesn’t collect local property taxes and operates solely on revenue generated by airport users,” said Buck Taft, Airport Director. “This is important because we don’t want Franklin County residents to have to subsidize the airport with their property taxes. The increased parking rates will ensure that the airport can continue to be self-sustaining and to pay for critical improvements.”
The Port last voted to raise parking rates in 2017. The new daily rates are comparable to other airports in the Pacific Northwest, where long-term rates range from $10 – $15 per day and short-term rates range from $14 – $27 per day.
