BWI Marshall Airport to Relocate and Expand Cell Phone Lot on April 1

No April Fools’ Joke—Larger, More Convenient Cell Phone Lot Also Means More Spaces for Express Parking

On Tuesday, April 1, BWI Marshall Airport will move the Cell Phone Lot to a new, larger location. The new Cell Phone Lot will be located along Terminal Road at Scott Drive, adjacent to the BWI Marshall Daily Garage. The new location for the Cell Phone Lot is directly across Terminal Road from its current location, and only about a block from Aviation Blvd / Maryland-170.

The relocated Cell Phone Lot will offer about 100 parking spaces, double the number available in the current facility. The Cell Phone Lot is a free, short-term wait area for motorists meeting passengers at BWI Marshall. The Cell Phone Lot allows motorists to avoid circling Airport roadways while waiting to meet arriving travelers.

“The new Cell Phone Lot location will add spaces and convenience for our customers,” said Paul J. Wiedefeld, Chief Executive Officer of BWI Marshall. “The Cell Phone Lot is an important amenity for local motorists, and the additional spaces will allow more people to access the lot, especially at peak times.”

The move also will create additional spaces in the BWI Marshall Express Parking Lot. The current Cell Phone Lot was created with spaces from the Express Parking Lot. Express Parking provides BWI Marshall customers with a high-level parking experience, including luggage assistance and carside-to-curbside shuttle service. Motorists who park in the Express Lot are picked-up and dropped-off directly at their vehicle.
