McCarran opens free parking site for pickups

Posted at 11:02 AM, Mar 15, 2016

McCarran International Airport has opened a special lot for passenger pickup service.

The McCarran Cell Phone Lot is a short term waiting area located only minutes from the Passenger Pickup curbs at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.

If you're coming from Tropicana Avenue, follow the signs for Terminal 1 and 3 until you see the sign that says cell phone lot. Keep to the left and keep going until you reach Kitty Hawk. Then make a right and you will see a sign for the economy lot. Turn right again and the cell phone lot will be on your left before you reach the economy lot.

McCarran officials waited to bring a cell phone lot since they offered free 15-minute parking in their short-term lot right near passenger pickup. McCarran officials are going to put more signs, lights and security cameras before they start promoting the lot.

Drivers may wait in their vehicles free of charge while friends and family deplane, pick up their luggage and walk out to the Passenger Pickup Curbs.
The Cell Phone Lot is open from 6 a.m. until 1 a.m. daily. The area is paved, well-lit and under 24 hour video surveillance. It is also regularly patrolled by airport parking staff.
There are no restroom facilities available at this location.
No unattended or commercial vehicles are allowed in the lot. There is also no parking allowed on airport roadways or shoulders. Violators of these rules will be cited, and possibly towed.
