General Parking

Bob Hope Airport knows that good parking is a key part of offering a good airport experience.  The Airport provides three basic parking options:  Economy, Short Term, and Valet. We have refined our parking operation to ensure spaces are always available for the type of parking each airport patron prefers. (Please note that special restrictions apply to oversized vehicles.)

Economy Parking with free shuttle service to the terminal offers the lowest price. Shuttles to all lots pick up passengers at the pedestrian islands in front of the terminal.

Short Term Parking next to the terminal is aimed at meeters and greeters who want to find their party quickly and easily. It is available at economical pricing for the first hour.

Valet Parking in front of the terminal is quick, convenient, and value priced at $23.00 per day. Over the past 20 years, it has proven to be an immensely popular option for locally-based travelers.

Valet Service allows customers to drive into the airport, leave their keys with the Valet, and proceed directly to the terminal. To initiate car retrieval upon arrival at Bob Hope Airport, customers can call 1-866-727-5287 (printed on valet tickets); call Valet on an airport courtesy phone and enter your ticket number or utilize express pay terminal kiosks (see map).
