Sea-Tac changes garage designations

Sea-Tac Airport is changing how it labels the two parking options in its multi-story terminal garage.

Instead of the present “Hourly” and “Daily”, the two different parking options will become “Terminal Direct” and “General Parking.”

Perhaps more descriptive labels would be “Expensive” and “Not Quite as Expensive.”

“Terminal Direct” parking will be on the garage’s fourth floor, the same floor as the skybridges to the terminal. “General Parking” will be on other floors of the garage where you’ll have to take an elevator or stairs to the fourth floor to reach the terminal.

The rates will be $3 an hour for General Parking and $4 an hour for Terminal Direct. On a daily basis, the convenience of the fourth floor will cost $35. General Parking will be $26 a day.
